9 am - 3 pm
Towner Fellows Lounge
The presence of African culture in Brazil and in Caribbean countries has long been and remains a fundamental topic in the construction of their national identities. This seminar will examine how Brazilian and Caribbean intellectuals and artists have, in different ways, imagined and celebrated the African heritage of their countries. We will examine how people of African descent and African cultural elements appear, for instance, in works by a Cuban painter, a Franco-Brazilian photographer, a Haitian anthropologist, and a Trinidadian historian, and will look for similarities and differences between them.
