allAfrica.com: Rwanda: How Colonialism Has Deemed African Languages Unworthy

allAfrica.com: Rwanda: How Colonialism Has Deemed African Languages Unworthy | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

Book: Decolonising the Mind: The Politics of Language in African Literature

Author: Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o

Available at: Kigali Public Library

In this book, Thiong'o explains how colonialism has deemed African languages unworthy of use - both by the colonisers and the colonised.

He explains how a "cultural bomb" was dropped on Africa so the minds (and consequently the resources) of Africans were controlled. "Make them hate themselves," as the mission goes.

This was seen in the schools where European languages were idolized, the streets where African languages became synonymous with the language of the peasantry, and at the prison cells were those African writers who choose to stay true to their mother tongue were held.

Doing Research on Mobile Devices

Teach your students how to do research on mobile devices. Topics include mobile surveys, collecting and sharing, note-taking, sketching, document scanning, real-time thoughts and impressions, and audio, photo, and video recording.

This infographic gives you a preview of the more in-depth coverage you'll find in Bovee and Thill's business communication textbooks to be published in 2015. Only Bovee and Thill's business communication textbooks are expected to cover mobile business communication in 2015. All other business communication textbooks will become obsolete.

Mobile is this type of disruptive technology, but only Bovee and Thill have responded. How? By integrating mobile into every chapter in an exclusive, groundbreaking presentation in their 2015 editions.


This is the first in a series of seven infographics to be published in the coming weeks.
