Dr. Peter Arthur

I am a Senior Lecturer and the Head of Department of Language and Communication Sciences, KNUST. My area of specialization is text analysis in literature, traditional and contemporary cultures. I love how language intersects with culture and this has led me to research a lot more in oral literature. I am currently working on the Ghanaian folktale, Anansesem, and the potential it holds for Ghanaian pedagogy, morality and philosophy. I also love working on the literariness and performances of Ghanaian traditional festivals. On the other side is my research in Ghanaian contemporary culture spanning over the period of highlife to that of hiplife.
