The Performance of Listening in Postcolonial Francophone Culture synopsis
The performance of listening in post-colonial Francophoneculture argues that globalized media have allowed for an effective transfer of transnational culture. Our daily experiences are thus informed by voices ranging from sounds, music, announcements, bombs, and beyond. Looking at cultural works from North Africa and the French-speaking Middle East that were published or published in France from 1962 to 2011, the Solheim study of cultural listening would be of interest to any curious scientist or person of contemporary post-colonial France.
This book is also the primer of the contemporaryFrancophoneculture of North Africa and the Middle East. Some of the most famous French-speaking artists are the subject of this study, including prominent Algerian feminist novelist and filmmaker and historian Asia Jabbar (1936-2015), the first Maghreb writer to become part of the French Academy; a well-known Iranian graphic novelist and filmmaker Morgan Satrapi The Lebanese playwright and the Lebanese comedian and Mazen Karabaj, the free trumpet player Mazen Karbaj, who left him with the Israeli fighters during the 2006 Israeli war, "The Night of the Stars," led him to universal recognition.
