Being Apart: Theoretical and Existential Resistance in Africana Literature (2015)

Author
LaRose T. Parris

Summary
“Being Apart” presents a theory of Africana literature that analyses the marginalization of Africana knowledge production in the West during the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries. By highlighting Africana thinkers’ theoretical resistance to their elisions in Western discourse, this study presents critiques of Enlightenment, Hegelian, and Marxist thought as formative ideologies that have bound Eurocentric thought to the Western canon.
