Cameroon’s First Novelist to Visit MHC

Thérèse Kuoh-Moukoury, the first novelist of Cameroon and sub-Saharan Francophone Africa, will present a free, public lecture (in French) on traditional African oral literature in French on Thursday, April 10, at 8 pm in the Morrison Room of Willits-Hallowell Center. Kuoh-Moukoury’s talk, titled “La Littérature Orale Traditionnelle: Paroles et Chansons,” is cosponsored by the French departments of Mount Holyoke, Smith, and Amherst Colleges, and by the Department of French and Italian at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.


Kuoh-Moukoury is the author of Rencontres Essentielles, which has recently been published in English translation as Essential Encounters (MLA Texts and Translations Series, 2002). She has also written numerous poems, short stories, journal articles, and the highly acclaimed “Couples Dominos: Aimer Dans la Difference,” a sociological essay about the dynamics of biracial couples. Her most recent book, soon to be published, is based on the life of Alexandre Douala Manga Bell, one of Cameroon’s most intriguing political and historical figures.


In addition to a writing career, Kuoh-Moukoury has had a successful career in law, specifically in children’s rights, from which she recently retired. She is also a well-traveled journalist and activist, having served as the president of the Union of African and Malagasy Women.
