Joseph Ford in conversation with Imen Neffati
Joseph Ford is joined by Imen Neffati to discuss his new book Writing the Black Decade: Conflict and Criticism in Francophone Algerian Literature, which examines how literature-and the way we read, classify, and critique literature-impacts our understanding of the world at a time of conflict. Using the bitterly-contested Algerian Civil War as a case study, Joseph Ford argues that, while literature is frequently understood as an illuminating and emancipatory tool, it can, in fact, restrain our understanding of the world during a time of crisis and further entrench the polarized discourses that lead to conflict in the first place.
