The Center for Diopian Inquiry and Research on Education as Culture Transmission (DIRECT Center) and The Office of International Programs at Medgar Evers College of the City University of New York (CUNY) in collaboration with the African World Studies Institute at Fort Valley (GA) State University present the 3rd annual Uncovering Connections: Cultural Endurance between Africa, the Americas and the Caribbean conference. The conference is scheduled for Friday March 15, 2002 and Saturday March 16, 2002 at the address below.
The Uncovering Connections: Cultural Endurance between Africa, the Americas and the Caribbean conference is organized around roundtable discussions and paper sessions that focus on themes related to culture transmission and retention. Each session will focus on papers developed by three to five presenters. This years’ papers specifically
address and promote an understanding of African culture as inclusive of the culture of Africans on the continent and Africans throughout the world,
foster scholarship that illustrates and investigates the mechanisms through which African culture has survived despite invasions, enslavement and colonization and
encourage students to explore the cultural continuities between Africa, the Americas and the Caribbean.
Free for CUNY students with university I.D.
