An Interactive Symposium
The bifurcated treatment of the continent between two separate geographical domains, in different fields of study and politics, has deepened the divide between Africans on both sides of the imaginary Saharan border, as it betrays the historical connections which tie these regions. This gathering allows us to reimagine an African identity beyond essentialism and ethnocentrism while offering methodological approaches to remedy this intra-continental split along racial, ethnic, and religious lines.
The aim of this gathering is to reflect together on how, we as Africans, think about Africa and the North African narrative in the continent.
This interactive symposium will include scholars and students from the continent and the African diaspora.
