elleni centime zeleke firstname.lastname@example.org Friday, January 18, 2013 X-Posted to GLOBAL-SOUTH@yorku.ca Workshop in honour of Cabral This message was originally submitted by ellenicentimezeleke@GMAIL.COM to the We would like to invite you to attend our upcoming workshop “The Promises and Perils of African Nationalism(s): A Workshop in Honour of Amlicar Cabral,” at York University, 25 January 2013, at * Founders College 305, Keele Campus, York University*. January 20th, 2013 will mark the 40th anniversary of Cabral’s assassination. To mark the occasion, Africanist scholars at York University are organizing a one-day workshop on the legacies and potentialities of African nationalist thought and praxis. We would like to spark an * intergenerational* and *interdisciplinary* conversation about the concepts and theoretical dispositions of African nationalism as it has played out across a number of geographies.The workshop is meant to be intimate and we are hoping that panelists and audience members will endeavour to attend the entire workshop as well as contribute to discussions through out the day. Overall, the workshop endeavours to address three central questions. Firstly, how has the international Pan-African imagination been shaped by, and in turn shaped, the outlooks of scholars and struggles, past and present? Secondly, what has been the fate of various African nationalist projects and how have they influenced postcolonial social movements? And finally, how can Cabral’s revolutionary thought and praxis assist us in understanding the promises and perils of African nationalism?
