Session Title:Production and circulation of Afro-Hispanophone/ Lusophone performing and visual arts
African dance, theater, music as well as photography, paintings, handcrafts and so on have been and are central to the understanding of African(s) culture(s) within its continent and in the continuous movement through past and present diaspora and/or migration. This session seeks to explore the links between production and circulation of Afro-Hispanophone/Lusophone artists in Europe, Latin America, and within Africa with a specific focus on performing and visual arts as a form of knowledge and narration of local and global realities. An interdisciplinary or comparative approach is also encouraged.
Please submit a 200 word abstract in English, Spanish or Portuguese and a short bio to Stefania Licata, Converse College, firstname.lastname@example.org by January 28th and feel free to circulate it among colleagues.
