ODUN: Discourses, Strategies, and Power in the Yorùbá Play of TransformationODUN: Discourses, Strategies, and Power in the Yorùbá Play of Transformation
Boscolo, Cristina

A poetic voice scans the rhythm of academic research, telling of the encounter with odún; then the voice falls silent. What is then raised is the dust of a forgotten academic debate on the nature of theatre and drama, and the following divergent standpoints of critical discourses bent on empowering their own vision, and defining themselves, rather, as counter-discourses. This, the first part of the book: a meta-critical discourse, on the geopolitics (the inherent power imbalances) of academic writing and its effects on odún, the performances dedicated to the gods, ancestors, and heroes of Yorùbá history. 337pp, NETHERLANDS. RODOPI.
