Richard Wrigth @ 100
Sobre o livro
To commemorate Richard Wrigth’s centennial, scholars from Europe, the United States, and Africa gathered at the University of Beira Interior (UNI), Portugal, at the end of 2008. The present volume gathers ten critical essays and a poem shared at these convivial and thougth-provoking international two-day commemorations. The diversity of approaches to Wright’s thought and works which follows is in itself evidence of the profound complexity and high relevance of his intellectual and artistic production to contemporary literacy, political and social debate and the farsightedness of his socio-political commentary on matters of race has become a kind of refrain in Wright scholarship at the onset of the 21th century.
