FREEDOM IN AFRICA: A Documentary & Digital Humanities Archive

Web Premiere @ 4PM

Introduction by Phyllis Taoua, French & Italian

This innovative project features dozens of video interviews representing 15 countries, accessible on an interactive map, documenting the meaning of freedom in numerous African languages and contexts across the continent. Taken together, these interviews offer an extensive, substantive debate and numerous perspectives prevalent in contemporary Africa. The project values cultural agency in indigenous languages, ensuring African voices shape the conversation, set priorities and say what the struggle means to them. Phyllis Taoua, Professor of French, will provide a guided tour of her project and website: Documenting Freedom in Africa.
