    Dear colleagues,

    Please consider submitting an abstract to the following session for the 2019 ALA (African Literature Association) Conference, which will take place at Renaissance Columbus Downtown Hotel, from May 15 to May 18, 2019.

    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, by January 28th. Please feel free to circulate it among colleagues.
