Annual Conference for The International Society for African Philosophy and Studies

Conference Theme: Violence and Representation in Africa and the African Diaspora

Date: April 17-20 2011

Venue: The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, USA

The seventeenth annual conference of the International Society of African Philosophy and Studies hosted by the Department of African American and African Studies and the Department of French and Italian at the Ohio State University will bring together scholars, artists, practitioners, and activists from a variety of disciplines to explore the nature, forms, and manifestations of violence in the African world.  Apart from the traditional more or less negative representations of violence, the conference will enable participants to further nuance the concept of violence and connect it to morality, ethics, accountability, and “democracy.”  Scholars are also encouraged to discuss epistemic, economic, social, and political manifestations of violence that have functioned both as a means to free Africans, as a resource to keep them in subordination, or, as Fanon claims, as a cleansing force.
