By all accounts the Remembering Africa & Its Diasporas Workshop was a success. The workshop brought in an international group of scholars. They keynote address was given by Professor Sir Hilary Beckles (University of the West Indies, Cave Hill). The workshop proceedings Remembering African and Its Diasporas: Memory, Public History & Representations of the Past has been published with Africa World Press (2012).
The actual execution of the workshop would not have been possible without the secretarial, logistical, and emotional support provided by a group of enthusiastic and hardworking graduate students including Erin Bell, James Braun, Victoria Campbell, Emanuel Hogg, Ryan Patterson and a number of equally committed undergraduate students who are affiliated with the Institute for African Studies at Carleton University.
