This compilation was inspired by an international symposium held at University of Ghana over three days in September 2003. Hosted by the CODESRIA African Humanities Institute Programme, the symposium had the broad theme ‘Canonical Works and Continuing Innovation in African Arts & Humanities’.

In these two volumes of 85 papers there are contributions from established scholars such as Mahmood Mamdani, Peter Ekeh, Samir Amin, James Ferguson, Anthony Kwame Appiah, Kofi Agawu, and Kwame Ninsin, which sit alongside contributions from well-known literary scholars including Efua Sutherland, Kofi Awoonor, Biodun Jeyifo, Niyi Osundare, Femi Osofisan, Kofi Anyidoho, and Ngugi wa Thiong’o.

Also included in the volume are classic papers by Claude Ake, Kwame Nkrumah, Chinua Achebe, Kwabena Nketia, and Kwasi Wiredu, plus those of up-and-coming young scholars of the day.
