Abstract:In September, 1978, Okike Magazine and the University of Kent African and Caribbean Studies Panel sponsored a weekend conference in Canterbury, which sought to explore amongst others, the following issues: What reasons are there for teaching African and Caribbean literature in British universities and schools? How do these reasons affect the selection of works and the ways in which they are taught7 What new perspectives values and techniques do African and Caribbean writers bring to literature in English? What authors and works might be most accessible to students of different backgrounds and ages? What problems do teachers encounter in trying to present these works? The present edition represents part of the Conference proceedings, viz.: Chinua Achebe, The uses of African literature'; M. Kinkead-Weekes, 'African literature in the university'; R. Cobham? 'Teaching Braithwaite's 'Wings of a Dove'' (West Indian); M. van der Water, 'African and Caribbean literature in the schools'; Dipak Nandy, 'Black Studies and the schools'; R. Profitt, 'Black Studies in the schools'; R. Giles, 'Black Studies in the United States'; K.H. Petersen. 'African literature in Denmark'; Reports from Workshops. Notes.
