Global Africa and the Humanities seeks to expand the scope of the humanities by galvanizing knowledge-practices that have been under-represented in the academic study of Africa and its Diaspora. Through its symposia the series seeks to connect, in a global network, individuals and institutions engaged in cutting-edge research towards the production of knowledge on Global Africa rooted in multiple epistemologies and capable of generating alternative pedagogies for research, teaching and dissemination of knowledge across disciplinary, geographic, cultural, religious, gender and generational boundaries. The series also reflects on Global Africa’s relationship to the global academy in terms of knowledge production, dissemination and consumption, with particular focus on the politics of location, mobility and positionality of knowledge in the humanities.
