The great diversity of ethnicities and languages in Africa encourages a vision of Africa as a fragmented continent, with language maps only perpetuating this vision by drawing discrete language groups. In reality, however, most people can communicate with most others within and across linguistic boundaries, even if not in languages taught or learned in schools. Many disciplines have looked carefully at language movement and change on the continent, but their lack of interaction has prevented the emergence of a cohesive picture of African languages. Tracing Language Movement in Africa gathers eighteen scholars together to offer a truly multidisciplinary representation of language in Africa, combining insights from history, archaeology, religion, linguistics, political science, and philosophy. The resulting volume illuminates commonalities and distinctions in these disciplines' understanding of language change and movement in Africa. The volume is empirical -- aiming to represent language more accurately on the continent -- as well as theoretical. It identifies the theories that each discipline uses to make sense of language movement in Africa in plain terms and highlights the themes that cut across all disciplines: how scholars use data, understand boundaries, represent change, and conceptualize power. The volume is organized to reflect differing conceptions of language that arise from its discipline-specific contributions: that is, tendencies to study changes that consolidate language or those that splinter it, viewing languages as whole or in part. Each contribution includes a short explanation of a discipline's theoretical and methodological approaches to language movement and change to ensure that the chapters are accessible to non-specialists, followed by an illustrative empirical case study. This volume will inspire multidisciplinary conversations around the study of language change in Africa, opening new interdisciplinary dialogue and spurring scholars to adapt the questions, data, and method of other disciplines to the problems that animate their own fields.

Après les déclarations de Nadine Morano sur "la France, pays de race blanche", Jean Bernabé analyse l'identitarisme : les tenants résolus de cette idéologie et leurs adversaires utilisent le mot "identité" de manière inadéquate qui concerne l'individu en tant que personne, et non les groupes humains. Ambigu, le terme "identité" appliqué aux peuples confère une immutabilité contestée par l'histoire. Il devrait être remplacé par le terme "spécificité". Et au-delà de cette substitution, il faudrait être plus attentif contre de telles dérives.

L'idée d'une invariance des peuples constitue un dangereux fantasme, qu'il importe d'éradiquer. Tenants et adversaires de l'idéologie identitariste partagent de façon paradoxale la même conception biaisée de l'identité, attribut concernant non pas les peuples, mais l'individu en tant que personne. Cette dérive étant décrite comme mortifère à partir d'une approche cognitive, sa conscientisation à l'échelle planétaire devrait donc constituer la première étape de la thérapie à mettre en oeuvre.

Le présent ouvrage prolonge l'essai publié en 2015 (Approche cognitive du créole martiniquais, Ranboulzay 1 / Révolution 1) et se compose de quatre parties : la première est une réflexion sur l'écriture du créole, la seconde est une nouvelle écrite dans un créole novateur, la troisième est un mini-dictionnaire créole, et la dernière est un mini-corpus de mots et expressions créoles. Cet essai milite pour un rapport équilibré entre les deux langues maternelles, opération qui ne peut réussir sans l'implication des pédagogies scolaires dans une démarche scientifique.

Dézafi is no ordinary zombie novel. In the hands of the great Haitian author known simply as Frankétienne, zombification takes on a symbolic dimension that stands as a potent commentary on a country haunted by a history of slavery. Now this dynamic new translation brings this touchstone in Haitian literature to English-language readers for the first time. Written in a provocative experimental style, with a myriad of voices and combining myth, poetry, allegory, magical realism, and social realism, Dézafi tells the tale of a plantation that is run and worked by zombies for the financial benefit of the living owner. The owner's daughter falls in love with the zombie overseer and facilitates his transformation back into fully human form, leading to a rebellion that challenges the oppressive imbalance that had robbed the workers of their spirit. With the walking dead and bloody cockfights (the "dézafi" of the title) as cultural metaphors for Haitian existence, Frankétienne's novel is ultimately a powerful allegory of political and social liberation.
