Towards an Ethnology of the Present in Literature: Diffraction and Reconstruction of the Francophone African Heritage Our purpose is to analyse contemporary francophone texts and the notion of an “ethnology of the present,” through metonymic reading and Foucauldian phenomenology, in order to show the diffraction and re-composition of a traditional African heritage by certain writers. The study of an initiation tale based on oneiromancy and its Luba symbols, and of a lyric epic inspired by the Malinké and Luba traditions, leads to key questions on the intersections of literature and anthropology in contemporary francophone African literatures (i.e. micro-ethnology versus macro-ethnology; co-construction of the field; theory of literary genres; hermeneutics).
