The name is Foday Mannah and I grew up in Sierra Leone, West Africa where I studied English Language and Literature. I currently work in Scotland, as a teacher of English. Manasque seeks to celebrate African Literature and its related spheres. Within this framework, issues surrounding race, gender, politics, culture and conflict shall be examined. In this respect, my wee blog intends focusing on two main areas: the local African experience and an examination of relationships within “The Diaspora”. “The Diaspora” component should hopefully focus on issues including immigration and identity. African literature is often marginalised and neglected and we consider it necessary to promote existing publications, whilst also seeking to produce original material. We are open and would whole-heartedly appreciate comments, analyses, evaluations, suggestions and contributions. Have a nice day and thanks for dropping in! You are appreciated!
