This collection is made up of 14 critical essays (7 in English and 7 in French) selected from a total of 30 papers delivered at a conference devoted to "The Changing Face of African Literature", organized in March 2006 at the Centre for African Studies (C.A.L.S.) of the University of KwaZulu-Natal (Pietermaritzburg campus). As indicated in the preface by Liz Gunner, the first director of C.A.L.S., the aim of the conference was both to examine the new trends in African literature (all the works considered were published no earlier than the 1990s) while going beyond the language barrier which for so long has hindered the development of the literature itself as well as literary criticism devoted to the field.
