AO: This news piece in the Anthro News website highlights some of the key questions that were tackled as part of the conference: who speaks with authority about Africa’s contemporary successes and failures? Is “the African Library” restricted to “Europhone” scholarship? To what extent is postcolonialism a relevant lens through which we regard contemporary patterns, processes, and institutions? What is the state of African studies? Who is allowed to theorize Africa? Are “Europhone” intellectuals the only scholars of Africa?
