Africa in the World: Past, Present, and Future

Wednesday, April 24, 2024 16:00to18:00
Room 232

The panel will discuss the future of Africa, Africans, and African diaspora studies within the prism of Pan-Africanism: past, present, and future. Encouraging the participation of faculty and students alike, panelists will discuss the ways in which the study of the continent fits in this Pan-Africanist enterprise from the perspective of their respective fields and explore how the field may be meaningfully integrated as part of global efforts at decolonizing the academy within the context of rapidly changing intellectual, political, and social dynamics impacting Africans and Afro-descendant communities representing, Africa in the World.
