Besides economic, diplomatic and interpersonal relations, the Africa-China encounter is also a narrative – the telling of a story. To better understand the complex and multiple ways in which Africa and Africans have been represented historically and in diverse Chinese cultural spaces, the Organising Committee of the 6th Chinese in Africa / Africans in China Research Network Conference invites you to join our 4th online mini-symposium titled ‘Relocating Africa: Representations and Memory of Africa in 20th and 21st Century China’ this May 7, 2021 (Friday).
Join Ignatius Suglo, from the School of Modern Languages and Cultures (China studies) at the University of Hong Kong; Emily Chow-Quesada, from the Department of English Language and Literature at Hong Kong Baptist University; and Clifford Pereira, from the African Studies Programme at the University of Hong Kong, for what promises to be a fascinating conversation.
This event is hosted by the Chinese in Africa / Africans in China Research Network Conference Organising Committee in collaboration with the Centre for Cultural Research and Development at Lingnan University, Hong Kong.
