ASA Women's Caucus (African Studies Association conference San Francisco November 17-21, 2010
Land, Food and Freedom: Gendered Struggles for the Commons in Africa
This panel will consider how history, literature, and art inform and are expressed in contemporary gendered resistance to enclosure in Africa and the African diaspora. What alternatives are being affirmed by African women and allied men in the face of an escalation of land and seed grabs, odious debt, resource alienation and Gate-Rockefeller bio-colonialism? How and to what extent can international aid, policy and solidarity support the wide variety of already-existing indigenous initiatives for food and resource sovereignty?
This panel/roundtable will be proposed as one of the 3-part series under
Discourses on Enclosure, Environmental Justice, Sovereignty, and Sustainability in Africa and the African Diaspora I-III.
