The Politics of Knowledge Production—An Intellectual Sojourn into Understanding; Epistemology and Practice of African Gender History

Nwando Achebe.

Feb 13, 2020
1:00 - 2:00 p.m.
509 O’Brien Hall
UB North Campus

Nwando Achebe details her personal journey into becoming an Africanist and gender historian. Along the way, she considers questions relating to the ownership and production of Africanist knowledge; while highlighting several influential interpretive voices that have shaped received canon in ways that are at best, problematic; and at worst, Eurocentric. These voices have worked to interrupt and/or disrupt true understanding and knowing about African women and gender. She ends by offering up her own African- and gender-centered intervention into existing discourse and production of history. Reception will follow lecture.
Cosponsored by the UB Department of History, Gender Institute, School of Law and the Office of the Vice Provost for Inclusive Excellence.
