Elizabeth Isichei explores the Atlantic slave trade, as reflected in the poetics of rumour and the poetics of memory - an approach different from the quantitative and demographic studies, which have transformed the subject over the past twenty years. To this and to her study of popular consciousness in the colony and postcolony, she brings together a wide range of disciplines - ethnography, art and art history, and contemporary literary theory among them - to look at the intellectual history of Africa, from African rather than European premisses. The result is a history of popular consciousness, which shows the experiences of ordinary people, often in protest to an ongoing experience of exploitation. Elizabeth Isichei is Professor of Religious Studies, Otago University, Dunedin, New Zealand and author of over a dozen books on African history and religion. She holds an Oxford doctorate, and a D.Litt from the University of Canterbury, and is a fellow of the Royal Society (N.Z.)
