Therefore, we adopt a posture open to the various possible approaches, in the perspective of receiving works on which the foundations of Comparative Literature are based. Thus, contemplating interdisciplinarity, intersemiotic and intercultural readings, in the sense of, understanding the phenomenon of dispersion of African peoples around the world and the implications of such dispersion in the most diverse social spheres and to understand the cultural heterogeneity present in the African continent, in order to deconstruct the predominant homogenizing vision of the continent.
