Human Journeys and the Quest for Knowledge in African Writing

Author: 

Pouille, Adrien-teaches French, Francophone, and African literatures and cinemas at Wabash College, in Indiana

Credentials: 

He has contributed to The Obama Phenomenon: Change We Can (2011) and African Cultural Production and The Question of Humanism (2019). He co-authored, A Saafi-Saafi (Sébikotane Variety) and English/French Dictionary (2016).

In Human Journeys and the Quest for Knowledge in African Writing, Adrien Pouille aims to expand the conversation on what human journeys may signify in the African context with several oral and modern narratives. As one of the main informants about African migration, popular journalism has propagated a traumatic and materialistic view of African temporal and spatial movements. Such a reductive conception of the African journeys can also be found on the continent, where leaving home, to the West in particular, may be viewed by many as a quest for nothing more than economic prosperity.

Iconoclast: Ideas That Have Shaped The Culture Wars

Author: 

Halloran, Mark Ph.D., journalist, psychologist, and radio host

The culture wars are raging again.

Orthodox Christianity is one of the world’s major religions, and the Russian Orthodox Church is by far its largest denomination. Few know its history and spiritual richness, however.

The Russian Orthodox Church’s Eastern roots, including its dogma, canons, and practices, are explored, along with the political and military contexts in which it carried out its mission over the centuries.
