The Princeton African Humanities Colloquium (PAHC) is hosting a two-day colloquium from November 16-17 on Africa & Digital Humanities. The event will take place in the form of a webinar featuring keynote addresses and three panel discussions.
The PAHC was founded in 2013 by Professor Simon Gikandi, the Chair of English at Princeton University, and it aims to promote research in African studies by providing an annual platform and funding for scholars to engage in projects focused in African humanities. This year’s colloquium “looks at the new and innovative ways of researching, documenting, historizing, writing, and theorizing about the African continent and its people that stem out of the digital turn.”
Confirmed speakers include Brittle Paper’s very own Dr. Ainehi Edoro, Sean Jacobs of Africa is a Country, Bhakti Shringarpure of Warscapes, Mark Anthony Neal of Left of Black, and many more digital archivists of African cultural production.
Registration is free and accessible to guests with Zoom accounts.
