Viva Africa 2021: Africa and (the Other) Europe: Imageries – Discourses – Exchanges

Conference venue:
rooms 200 and 201, Jan Palach Square 1/2 and ZOOM

Date: 15–17 September 2021
Cultural program venue:
HYB, Hybernská 4, Bar

Date: 14 September 2021

Twelfth VIVA AFRICA international conference invites participants to engage in a discussion of mutual encounters, inventions, constructions and relations of all kinds taking place between Africa and Europe, in the past, present and future.

One of the aims is to give more nuance to the postcolonial debate that tends to use reified notions of ‘Europe’ as simply part of the ‘West’ or the ‘global North’, forgetting about ongoing, if more subtle, developments between European countries ‘without colonies’ and the African continent.

The conference seeks to shed light on the nature of the exchange of ideas, knowledge, goods, cultural artifacts and people under various political and economic circumstances and regimes of imagination and knowledge production between Africa and Europe
