The violence used in the transformation of post-colonization African cognitive and socio-cultural profiles had its greatest impact on Christian and Islamic schools and religious spaces. But this process of transformation did not prevent the first colonized adults from expressing their rejection and consequent resistance to the imposition of English, French, Portuguese, German, Spanish... in Africa.
This workshop will focus on the discovery of these first linguistic resistances, often interrupted and hidden by colonization, which decreased as literacy from the colonial school reached more people. Can we speak today of linguistic resistance in Africa? What does the African Union and the African States themselves do or say to support and/or promote the knowledge, use and systematic transmission of African languages? Why are African languages not taught after primary education? These and other questions will be answered during this workshop
