INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE: “AFRICAN /DIASPORA MIGRATIONS, DISPLACEMENTS AND MOVEMENTS: HISTORIES, POLITICS AND POETICS”

October 30, 2019 to November 1, 2019
9:30 AM – 9:00 PM 
BLACKBURN CENTER AT HOWARD UNIVERSITY

The International Conference, “African/Diaspora Migrations, Displacements and Movements: Histories, Politics and Poetics”, will take place at Howard University and last three days (October 30 – November 1, 2019). As for the organization of the first two international and inter/multidisciplinary conferences, this third international and inter/multidisciplinary conference will echo both the U.N.’s Proclaimed Year (2011) and Decade for People of African descents (2015-2024), while it is an attempt also to weigh in the conversation about the recent non-banding Migration Pact of Marrakech (Morocco, December 10, 2018). In this context, it aims to invite local, national and international scholars from all disciplines, students, artists, journalists, film(makers) critics, activists, policy makers, NGOs, community organizers, and Human Rights Organizations to address one of the most challenging and paradoxical human experience, i.e. African/diaspora migrations in a world self-defined as “global(ized)”.
