In Praise of Wild Ecopedagogy
Wednesday, May 3, 2023
The late Tẹjumọla Ọlaniyan was an astute theorist of the politics of African cultural forms. With his work on drama, music, and cartoons, Ọlaniyan moved across forms with a clear-eyed, rigorous attention to political forms and the formal politics of cultural productions. Taking inspiration from Ọlaniyan’s multimodality and consistent interest in the political work of texts, Professor Cajetan Iheka asks in this lecture what African literature and film can teach us about ecology.
