Throughout time, humans have crisscrossed regions of the world and the entire globe to share, trade, and conquer. Despite this constant in human history many see our present time as the “age of globalization.” Especially during the last decade, demonstrations, meetings, books and documentaries have focused on this phenomenon, but not sufficiently on people of the African Diaspora. The Central Pennsylvania Consortium addresses this through the 2004 African American Studies Conference, “Globalizations and the African World” on February 27-28 at Gettysburg College.
The conference asks artists and academics to investigate various epochs of globalization, and how African peoples have shaped and been shaped by globalization. An opening plenary, panels, and a number of performance events will explore the issues from a variety of disciplinary and artistic traditions.
