Most widely held works by Frieda Ekotto
Rethinking African cultural production( )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 939 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frieda Ekotto, Kenneth W. Harrow, and an international group of scholars set forth new understandings of the conditions of contemporary African cultural production in this forward-looking volume. Arguing that it is impossible to understand African cultural productions without knowledge of the structures of production, distribution, and reception that surround them, the essays grapple with the shifting notion of what "African" means when many African authors and filmmakers no longer live or work in Africa. While the arts continue to flourish in Africa, addressing questions about marginalization, what is center and what periphery, what traditional or conservative, and what progressive or modern requires an expansive view of creative production
Race and sex across the French Atlantic : the color of Black in literary, philosophical, and theater discourse by Frieda Ekotto( )

5 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 917 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Race and Sex across the French Atlantic is a critical reconceptualization of the contributions of France and the French-speaking world to race relations in the continental United States. Radically re-evaluating the work of French and Francophone cultural icons such as Jean Genet, Aime Cesaire, Frantz Fanon and Dany Laferriere, this book makes use of untapped historical archival records that link these writers to important African-American political activists and intellectuals such as Lorraine Hansberry, James Baldwin and the Black Panthers, and even to the white American writer Norman Mailer

L'écriture carcérale et le discours juridique chez Jean Genet by Frieda Ekotto( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in French and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cet ouvrage montre comment une écriture jaillie de l'enfermement carcéral permet d'analyser, voire de contrer, la rhétorique et la logique de tout appareil juridique qui plaise, acquitte et condamne, en toute impunité. Cette étude examine la rencontre de plusieurs discours notamment celle du discours carcéral et du discours juridique à travers l'œuvre d'un écrivain français, Jean Genet
Nimrod : selected works by Nimrod( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Chadian writer Nimrod-philosopher, poet, novelist, and essayist-is one of the most dynamic and vital voices in contemporary African literature and thought. Yet little of Nimrod's writing has been translated into English until now. Introductory material by Frieda Ekotto provides context for Nimrod's work and demonstrates the urgency of making it available beyond Francophone Africa to a broader global audience. At the heart of this volume are Nimrod's essays on Le̹opold Se̹dar Senghor, a key figure in the literary and aesthetic Ne̹gritude movement of the 1930s and president of Senegal from 1945 through 1980. Widely dismissed in recent decades as problematically essentialist, Senghorian Negritude articulated notions of "blackness" as a way of transcending deep divisions across a Black Diaspora under French colonial rule. Nimrod offers a nuanced reading of Senghor, drawing out the full complexities of Senghor's philosophy and reevaluating how race and colonialism function in a French-speaking space. Also included in this volume are Nimrod's essays on literature from the 2008 collection, The New French Matter (La nouvelle chose francÌʹaise). Representing his prose fiction is his 2010 work, Rivers' Gold (L'or des rivieÌ⁰res). Also featured are some of Nimrod's best-loved poems, in both English translation and the original French. The works selected and translated for this volume showcase Nimrod's versatility, his intellectual liveliness, and his exploration of questions of aesthetics in African literature, philosophy, and linguistics. Nimrod: Selected Writings marks a significant contribution toward engaging a broader audience with one of the vital voices of our time. This book will be essential reading for Anglophone students and scholars of African philosophy, literature, poetry, and critical theory, and will offer a welcome introduction to Nimrod for general readers of contemporary international writing

Vibrancy of silence : a discussion with my sisters( Visual )

4 editions published in 2017 in French and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"...The first installment of Frieda Ekotto's visual research project Vibrancy of Silence : Achiving Images and Cultural Production of Sub-Saharan African Women on African women as the unsung heroines of artistic and cultural production. Indeed, their immense cultural and creative contributions remain underrepresented and inexplicably invisible. It is a desire to affirm and archive her own story and thus participate in a rereading of the "Colonial Library" with new kinds of narratives by and for women for themselves." -- Container
