'Africans in English Caricature 1769–1819' wins the 2019 Book Award of the Historians of British Art

The Book Prize Committee of The Historians of British Art is pleased to announce that "Africans in English Caricature 1769–1819: Black Jokes, White Humour" by Temi Odumosu has won the 2019 award for a single-authored book with a subject between 1600-1800.

The book cleverly explores how and why satirical artists both mocked and utilized Africans as subversive comic weaponry between 1769 and 1819, a period of unprecedented growth in the proliferation of texts and images in the popular sphere, engaging learned citizens in discussion and commentary on the most pressing social and political issues of the day.

Mens immobilis. Recherches sur le corpus latin des actes et des passions d’Afrique romaine (IIe-VIe siècles)
S. Fialon

Depuis les travaux de Paul Monceaux, au début du XXe siècle, le corpus hagiographique africain a évolué : il s’est enrichi de la découverte de nouveaux textes, alors que d’autres documents ont dû être écartés. Une nouvelle synthèse complète sur cette littérature était nécessaire, et c’est donc un corpus mieux circonscrit, composé de trente actes et passions racontant le martyre de chrétiens entre le IIe et la fin du Ve siècle, qui est analysé dans cet ouvrage.
