Sahara: A Thousand Paths Into the Future
|Author||Katerina Botanova, Yarri Kamara, Quinn Latimer (eds.)|
Sahara: A Thousand Paths Into the Future is devoted to the ideas, images, poetics, politics, fictions, and movements of this vast desert and its myriad voices. Focused on the cultural productions, lines of political and aesthetic thought, and multiple epistemologies and cosmologies of the Sahara, and the accompanying Sahel, this book understands the region as both an ancient space of connection and circulation—from its northern to southern shores, its dunes and volcanic mountains, to its lusher savannahs—and as a contemporary site of exchange between strikingly singular societies and communities on all sides of the desert, that aspect of the Sahara most often imaged and imagined.
