Afrikansk litteratur

Over four years, the House of Literature will promote literature, history and contemporary issues from the African continent and diaspora through a large project, with support from NORAD. Our goal is to introduce a multitude of voices from the African continent, and to give both children and adults in Norway a broader and more nuanced knowledge of Africa and of central global issues.

With this project, the House of Literature continues and strengthens our long-standing focus on the written and political Africa, present since the 2007 opening of the house, including guests such as Ngugi wa Thiong’o, Nadine Gordimer, Chiamanda Ngozi Adichie, Nuruddin Farah and Achille Mbembe, and with a children’s program built around stories and musicians with roots in Africa, along with digital biligual stories.

Below, you will find an overview over previous and upcoming events within this project.
