Description: Understanding culture through rigorous research into cultural processes and products, as some of the chapters in this volume seek to do, as well as seeking to interrogate the representation of Africa by others and Africans, leads us in the direction of creating work that re-defines – doing so by decoding, re-coding and recording. The 2007 CODESRIA Annual Social Science Campus on the theme of Contemporary African Cultural Productions offered a critical space for dialogue among contemporary scholars of Culture and Cultural Production led by a highly distinguished convenor, Valentin Y. Mudimbe, who generously deployed his vast knowledge and experience to catalyse participants to question received wisdom and assumptions, and explore new directions in researching and understanding culture and development. He was also to skilfully guide the laureates of the Campus to rework their thoughts, culminating in this volume which, in many ways, is a first for CODESRIA and the community of scholars it represents. Without doubt, this book will both bring to a broader audience, the rich debate in which participants in the 2007 Campus partook and further extend discussions in new directions on the key subjects they covered. In the end, it will be the distinct merit of the book that it gives full meaning to the long-standing commitment by CODESRIA and scholars such as Mudimbe to the increased privileging of the production of holistic inter-disciplinary knowledge in which the social sciences not only speak more to one another, but also to the arts, humanities, and other sciences.
