The State Of The Art(S):
African Studies And American Studies In Comparative Perspective
The Office of International Programs and the Faculty of Arts, both at the University of Cape Coast, Ghana, with the support of the Public Affairs Section of the United States Embassy, Ghana, are pleased to announce a four-day conference on "The State of the Art(s): African Studies and
American Studies in Comparative Perspective". The conference will be held at the Sasakawa Conference Centre at the University of Cape Coast, Cape Coast, Ghana, from May 8-11, 2002.
This conference, the second in a series, is built on the notion that a comparison of perspectives can provide the opportunity for dialogue and thus enhance understanding between the two continents. The press of our world today demands exacting new myths, metaphors, and theories, which can
stand in fair challenge to the rhetoric of intolerance and segregation. The virtue of the comparisons this conference hopes to engender is one that enables us to shine new light on shared problems, to synthesize current research, and to build towards a balanced understanding of Africa and America. The aim is to discover the state of the art(s): the best contemporary thinking about significant linkages between Africa and America within a multi-disciplinary and an inter-disciplinary context.
Please send all abstracts to the conveners before March 15, 2002.
