Premios Ensayo [Essay Prizes]

This book contains the three winning essays in the first call for the Casa África Essay Prizes. The subjects considered focus on relations between Sub-Saharan Africa and Spain from various standpoints: history, economic development and democratic consolidation processes. The aim of these prizes is to encourage and disseminate research which offers a plural and dynamic image of this region of the African continent, beyond the simple and homogenous views that have so characterised the Western consciousness. Authors: Gustau Nerín; Óscar Mateos Martín, Vicente J. Montes Gan and Eva Media Moral.

Mitos y Realidades en África.

Mitos y Realidades en África [Myths and Realities in Africa]

Africa specialists hold that the 20th century was a defining moment for the continent, as it saw the breaking up of age-old structures and the full arrival of globalisation. It was a century that saw many Africans die before their time, the victims of wars, hunger and poverty. Yet that is not the only image we should have of 20th century Africa: the population has tackled most of its problems, often in a satisfactory manner. This work aims to be an exercise of memory to set the departure points which from an ideological perspective have marked the start of the 21st century. Co-authors: Antonio Santamaria and Mbuyi Kabunda.

 
Imaginar África

Imaginar África [Imagining Africa]

Imagining Africa considers common stereotypes about Africa which still prevail in the Western worldview. Presented by colonial literature as being a dark continent and by thinkers as having no history, Africa has been perceived by part of the Western world as being an inhospitable place inhabited by people rooted in a tradition that prevented them from embracing modernity and its respective values, such as democracy and human rights. These stereotypes are reproduced on occasion by the media that forge public opinion. The vitality of African societies and their great cultural output rarely appear in the media and literature. Authors: Antoni Castel, Donato Ndongo, Jean Bosco Botsho, Lola López, Gustau Nerín and José Carlos Sendín.
