Francophone African Women Writers Embracing Eco-feminism (WIF session) (Panel)

AREA:French and Francophone / Women's and Gender Studies

Chair: Anna Rocca (Salem State University)

This panel welcomes papers exploring francophone African women writers’ narratives that approach human life as deeply embedded in both nature and culture. How have literary accounts exposed the intersectional ties among environmentalism, anticolonial struggle, and social justice? In which ways have African female writers challenged unjust ecologically destructive forms of imperial development and engaged in alternative forms of ecofeminist environmental ethics? How have they represented the double oppressions of women and nature? How do women writers depict communitarian and relational living and interdependence between humans and nature?
