Capital Culture: Perspectives in Ethnic Studies II

Cheryl Toman, Professor of French, and Gilbert Doho, Associate Professor of French, (La Doxa Editions) The book united 11 scholars from four countries (U.S., Cameroon, Ghana and the U.K.) and plays with the various meanings of “capital,” exploring social justice and diversity. Immigration, war, natural disasters, prostitution, corruption and marginalization are all explored in essays on human, political, economic and disaster capital. African and Caribbean Francophone literature and other studies examining African museums, festivals and cities are of particular interest. The Catalyst Award, a CWRU internal grant, was awarded to this project and supported its creation.
