International Conference 

Central Africa’s Renaissance, 1960-2020

With the goal of starting a close collaboration between Central African,
European and American researchers and enhancing the presence and
visibility of academic research in Central Africa, a diverse group of
researchers (composed of anthropologists, historians, political scientists,
sociologists, specialists in literature and arts, etc.) proposes an
international virtual conference from July 1-2, 2021, on the revival of
Central Africa covering the post-colonial period (1960-2020). The
conference sets out to examine forms of political, social, and cultural
renewal in countries of the sub-region. Are Central African societies
developing new cultures and visions that break from those of 1960 through
2000? Are the cultures and modes of thinking that emerged after Central
African independence progressively being replaced by 21st century
innovations? Are central African countries celebrating the potential of man
and woman? Is a renaissance of literature, arts, science taking place in
central Africa?
