African Futures and Urban Imaginaries

Event Summary

Presented by the Institute for Humanities Research, African Futures and Urban Imaginaries invites you to a free and dynamic interdisciplinary panel composed of artists, writers and intellectuals explore the roles that arts and the imagination play in envisioning global futures.

Focusing on African-centered perspectives of worldmaking and non-Western futures, specifically in the context of urban spaces, this panel conversation investigates the intersections of fiction and creative endeavors for questioning, critiquing and re-envisioning developmental paradigms associated with modern metropolitan geographies.

By placing an emphasis on indigenous and non-Western knowledge systems as vehicles for sustainable ecological and cultural futures, the panel will deliberate how different creative mediums can deepen African agency in re-imagining future cities.
