Extractions: 3.1 African Philosophy and Its Ethiopian Sources This paper would like to be a synthesis, within a synthesis, within a synthesis. First synthesis: African Philosophy, and within this continent-wide perspective, a second synthesis: the history of Ethiopian Philosophy written in Ge'ez, and together with this second synthesis, the oral expression of wisdom literature including mainly proverbs, songs and folktales - and its philosophical, mostly structural analysis, thus achieving a third synthesis: Ethiopian oral and written sapient and philosophical literature. Although the project sounds grandiose, it is fraught with problems. Is there such thing as African Philosophy? If so, who is or was this African philosopher? How do we know what he thought if it was expressed orally? What are its sources? Should we speak of African Philosophy or of African Philosophies? Ethiopian Philosophy written in Ge'ez - to what extent is it philosophy? What is its relation with religion, or even with theology? In what sense is it philosophy? What are its sources? Oral wisdom literature expressed in proverbs, songs and folktales - this is not considered as philosophy in the West. Why should it be in Africa, in Ethiopia? How can African philosophy be African if it cuts its roots? Are the roots of European, Greek philosophy European or African, Egyptian?

Extractions: (Anne Krost und Manja Pfeiffer) British Imperial Children's Literature was usually produced by middle class writers who thus wished to identify with their ideals of the social class above them. Juvenile literature represented the values and fantasy life of the elite. What were the main ideas of this literature? Natural history became one of the excitements of this age; hunting offered an image of exploration. Literature provided endless opportunities for presenting such topics as arctic snows, tropical forests and the life-style of foreign people. It included violence and death which is, from our modern point of view, not acceptable in children's literature. It seems as if the juvenile papers such as "Marvel" or "Girls Own Paper" encouraged young people to view the natives as strangers. Britain was interested in neither the language nor the culture of the natives but focused on their exploitation only. They drew inadequate pictures of the Imperial World. For example in 1913, the Boy's Own Paper carried an article entitled "A one ship navy", which centred around a black crew who were pictured as hopelessly incompetent and ignorant. Although children were thus able to escape from the adult world and their demands, this was also an indoctrination of the young.

Nemmers Title: Ronald Cohen Papers Dates: Provenance: Cohen, Ronald Abstract: Includes field notes, published and unpublished writings, correspondence, and professional papers created by anthropologist, Ronald Cohen. The majority of the collection pertains to Nigerians in the state of Borno (Bornu), particularly the Kanuri and Bura-Pabir speaking peoples. Extent: 9.25 linear ft. 28 Boxes Identification: MS Group 142 Ronald Cohen was born in Toronto, Canada, in 1930. In 1955, he married Diana B. Cohen. He received a Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1960. He served as Lecturer in Anthropology at the University of Toronto from 1958 to 1961. In 1961, he accepted a position as Assistant Professor at McGill University. From 1963 to 1982 Cohen served as a professor of anthropology at Northwestern University, including periods as Chair of the Department of Anthropology in the early 1970s and as Co-Director of the Program in Ethnography and Public Policy in the early 1980s. During the 1970s, he also took leave from Northwestern to serve as Chair of the Department of Anthropology and Sociology at Ahmadu Bello University. Professor Cohen joined the faculty of the University of Florida's Department of Anthropology in 1982, where he served until his retirement in 1995. Cohen's extensive field work includes four major research projects undertaken in Nigeria. In the mid-1950s, Cohen conducted ethnographic research examining social changes among the Kanuri of Borno in Northern Nigeria. In the late 1960s, he researched the high divorce frequency among the Kanuri. In the early 1970s, he conducted a large ethnographic study of the origins and structure of Babur-Bura society in Borno with a special emphasis on the spread of Islam and the split between the Babur (predominately Islamic) and the Bura groups in this region. In the mid-1980s, Cohen returned to Nigeria once again to examine the organization of food production in Nigerian agriculture, including farming scale and productivity.

But after more than 350 years, there are other narratives worth exploring as well, including India's own complicated relationship with the monument, and with the Islamic emperors who built it and many of this country's architectural treasures.
