CFP:  Prime Movers of the Atlantic World: Portugal and Africa

 This symposium provides Luso-Africanist scholars the opportunity to discuss
a plurality of ideas about Portugal and West African societies' positions in
modifying the Atlantic world. The multidisciplinary atmosphere encourages
collaboration between diverse research and theoretical perspectives focused
on topics such as culture contact and change, ethnic relations, identity
formation, transnational networks, neo/post-colonialism, globalization, etc.

This symposium explores three important questions:
(1) How were the Portuguese unique in their maritime conduct?
(2) How did African societies react to, adapt to, and resist Portuguese
(3) How do these real and imagined histories influence contemporary African
societies' worldviews?

WHEN: 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM, Saturday, April 22, 2006
WHERE: SUNY Buffalo 120 Clemens Hall
