Africa in Translation: Memory and Re-membering

Africa in Translation: Memory and Re-membering
Friday 1 July

10.00 – 13.45 FREE

This year, our annual symposium aims to explore the place of translation in the contested spaces of memory and re-membering, and its impact on society.  We look into the meaning of ‘the African body’ across time and space, and into the place of literature in cross-cultural scholarship, writing, reading, translation, publishing and performance.

Featuring Véronique Tadjo, Kama Sywor Kamanda, Abdilatif Abdalla, Roland Glasser, Ida Hadjivayani, Yvonne Chioma Mbanefo, Louisa Uchum Egbunike, Shirley Thompson, Chege Githiora, Onyekachi Wambu, SA Smythe, and Toni Stuart.

The symposium is curated by Wangui wa Goro and Bekisizwe Goro of SIDENSI with support from Afrikult, Birkbeck College, the Igbo Conference and AFFORD.
