Abstract
New technologies and the soaring accessibility of media production in recent decades have allowed African countries to challenge their place on the cultural world scene. Critic and curator Oulimata Gueye’s research focuses on the impact of digital technology on urban popular culture in Africa, and on the imaginary worlds it produces. The round table will center on Oulimata Gueye’s project Non-Aligned Utopias with scholars working on Afrofuturism and African history, media and expression, such as Dr. Susanna Morris (Georgia Tech), Dr. Subha Xavier (Emory University), Dr. Gladys Francis (Georgia State University), Dr. Alix Pierre (Spelman College) and Samba Sy (Georgia Tech). This event is co-organized by the Cultural services of the French Embassy in the United States and the School of Modern Languages and the School of Literature, Media,and Communication at Georgia Tech.
