This symposium seeks to create links between historical, regional and current struggles as they concern African descended communities in the Americas and Europe. Offering multifaceted analyses, speakers will complicate notions of race, freedom, belonging, transnationalism, desire and identities assumed and presumed in revealing portraits of African diasporic experiences.
Speakers: Dr Anne-Marie Angelo (University of Sussex), Dr Kerry Pimblott (University of Wyoming), Ms Christine Okoth (King’s College London) and Professor Tracey O. Patton (University of Wyoming).
Keynote: Professor Gus John (UCL Institute of Education)
Attendance is free of charge but registration is required.
Event co-organised with African American & Diaspora Studies (AADS) at the University of Wyoming (UW).
