Welcome to NeMLiA (New Media and Literary Intiatives in Africa), the multi-form resource on new media and literary and artistic initiatives across the African continent!

NeMLiA is a project dedicated to exploring the important-but-little-understood relationships between the different modes of literary and media production in literature, film, photography, art, and music as well as issues of intellectual property, copyright, piracy and access.

Founded in 2012, NeMLiA is a faculty-led initiative affiliated with Indiana University’s African Studies Program. We are dedicated to bringing together different resources—human, technological, institutional—which enable productive reflection on questions of unequal intellectual and symbolic exchanges, especially as these pertain to Africa-based cultural workers.

Here you will encounter and interactively experience the various formats which our on-going efforts have generated. From the links and other resources that are available on this website, you will see that our collaborators are mostly located on the African continent, but also very much linked to the translocal community that is the African world.

We encourage you to explore the website. We will continue to develop and expand its content!

  1. Thank you so much!!! I am working on a leadership development experience for Black students from NYU and your work is proving helpful as I consider self-portraiture, identity representation in the context of them spending time in Senegal bumping up against a myriad of issues that impact how they see themselves and the world. Much appreciated. Enjoy!!!

  2. Need to find effective online marketing that isn’t completely full of it? I apologize for sending you this message on your contact form but actually that’s exactly where I wanted to make my point. We can send your promotional message to websites through their contact pages just like you’re reading this ad right now. You can target by keyword or just fire off bulk blasts to websites in any country you choose. So let’s assume you’re looking to push through a message to all the contractors in the United States, we’ll grab websites for just those and post your promo to them. Providing you’re advertising something that’s relevant to that type of business then your business will get an amazing response!

  3. Good evening, I was just checking out your site and filled out your contact form. The contact page on your site sends you messages like this to your email account which is why you’re reading my message right now right? That’s the most important accomplishment with any type of online ad, making people actually READ your message and I did that just now with you! If you have something you would like to promote to lots of websites via their contact forms in the U.S. or to any country worldwide let me know, I can even focus on specific niches and my prices are super reasonable.
