Abstract in another language

The Making of Meaning in Africa; Word, Image and Sound Duncan Omanga and Gilbert Ndi Shang The present collection addresses the intricate ways in which events, processes and phenomena are apprehended and reproduced in Africa by graduate students at BIGSAS. Inasmuch as the contributions fall under the gamut of media, literary, linguistic and translation studies, they are all underlined by an investigative quest for the understanding of meaning making processes in Africa. The papers in this volume therefore attempt to offer a glimpse into some of these processes of meaning making in the continent.
