The North East Modern Languages Association (NeMLA) is pleased to announce that its 43nd Annual Convention conference will be held in Rochester, New York in March 15 to 18, 2012, in collaboration with St. John Fisher University.
This panel will explore the role of African female heroines in the quest of collective identity in Africa. How do these representative figures contribute to mold a collective African’s identity? We will examine the historical aspects that describe the relationships of the dominated to the dominant in order to measure the impact of the domination on the construction of the collective identity such as bravery, hope, and dignity.
