Co-organizers: Drs. Audra Abbe Diptee and David V. Trotman
This workshop brought together both junior and senior scholars to explore the ways in which representations of Africa and the making of its diasporas are inscribed in public historical memory. The meeting discussed a range of work that assesses the forces which have shaped the production of history, the dissemination of historical representations, and their influence on shaping popular perceptions of Africa and its diasporas.
Workshop Proceedings: The proceedings have been published in the collection Remembering Africa and Its Diasporas: Memory, Public History, and Representations of the Past (Africa World Press, 2012). The collection was edited by Drs. Audra Abbe Diptee and David V. Trotman.
Workshop Location: The workshop was held at Carleton University which is located at 1125 Colonel By Drive, Ottawa. The event was hosted in the Department of History lounge, Patterson Hall.
