Papers addressing issues relating to the role of African culture in the making of the modern world are invited for presentation at the 1st Biennial Faculty of Arts International Conference, June 6-9, 2011. This four-day conference taking place at the University of Ibadan, Nigeria seeks to understand the place, position and role of African culture (broadly defined), in the making of the modern world. It further seeks to interrogate the frameworks within which our culture has been represented in the expanding global circulation of people, ideas, knowledge, objects, texts, fabrics, songs, practices, values and beliefs. The conference brings together scholars of literature, culture, music and dance, religion, language, history, archaeology, performing arts, philosophy, art history and scholars from other disciplines and methodological approaches who are interested in the influence of African culture and its points of intersection with the modern world.
