At

The University of the West Indies, Mona Campus, Kingston Jamaica

October 30- Noverber 3, 2013

 

 
Historians are still debating the demographic, economic, social, cultural and religio-metaphysical consequences of enslavement, the slave trade, and the “middle passage” on/for Africa, Africans, and people of African descent in the Caribbean, the Americas and elsewhere. It is extremely difficult to settle the debate with population figures everybody will agree with. However, the long term psycho-behavioral consequences on the survivors, both in Africa and the Diaspora, have never been addressed systematically. The proposed conference aims to take advantage of this momentum to jumpstart a New Pan-Africanism upon a template deriving from such vantage points situated in the disciplines of anthropology, archaeology, history and philosophy.
  1. Anthropological, Archaeological, and historical investigations of the areas of origins and contemporary domicile of the African Diaspora
  2. Anthropological, Archaeological, and Historical investigations of African and African Diaspora Resistance and Resilience
  3. Anthropological, Archaeological, and Historical investigations of Material Culture and Technology of African Diaspora
  4. Anthropological, Archaeological, and Historical investigations on the construction of Social Space and Identity of Global and Diaspora Africa
  5. Philosophy, Religions, and Ritual Practices of Global Africa for Empowerment
  6. Culture, Education and Leadership and Global African Development

Leading scholars, intellectuals and organizations are to be invited to provide lead papers, plenaries and perspectives on the Six Thematic areas identified above, as framework for critical reflection.
