Item description for Conceptualizing/Re-Conceptualizing Africa: The Construction of African Historical Identity (International Studies in Sociology and Social Anthropology.. in Sociology and Social Anthropology) by Maghan Keita...

Africa is a legitimizing factor in the world: some might argue because of the weakness of its position in the world; others might say because of the realization on the part of some African leaders that there are strengths inherent to their states' positions that can be tapped. Africa's place in the world is being re-thought and re-shaped. In this work the authors invite and incite the reader to a close and nuanced reading of Africa and its history, and the way in which that history, over time and space, allows for a re-conceptualization of Africa's role and place in the world. The authors evoke W.E.B. Du Bois on the invention of identity in the modern world. In that light, these works remind us, as Du Bois would, that the current invention of Africa is indeed a modern one; an identity configured in numerous ways, with and without our interventions. There are contributions by Lamont de Haven King, Jesse Benjamin, Jeremy Prestholdt, Thomas Ricks, Launay Robert, Richard J. Payne and Cassandra Veney.
