The book explores the social conditions, political contexts, and cultural spaces of violence in Africa.It comprises accounts that underpin the visible and hidden `tracks and traces' of violence in the memories of traumatised individuals and groups. It also interrogates the gaps, silences and vacuities of/in these memories and the role they play in shaping the facial contours of our modern societies.Weaving together views from literature, anthropology, art, cultural studies and museum studies, this book provides deeper insight into the meanings of violent socialities, spatialities and temporalities, as well as into how they materialise in poetry, fiction, art and popular culture.
