The Institute for Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies is thrilled to announce an upcoming event this fall: “African Women Decolonizing History, Culture, and the Arts.” We are honored to host distinguished Zambian author and social activist, Mulenga Kapwepwe.
Title: African Women Decolonizing History, Culture, and the Arts: A Talk by Mulenga Kapwepwe
Date: Thursday, September 7th, 2023
Time: 6:00 PM EST
Location: Centennial Hall Auditorium, 100 Auburn Ave, Atlanta, GA 30303
Mulenga Kapwepwe is renowned for her significant contributions to women’s history, including the co-founding of the Zambian Women’s History Museum. The focus of this event will be on digital humanities and its potential to decolonize African history, culture, and the arts. Specifically, we will be exploring the work of The Women’s History Museum, a virtual museum that has been pivotal in making indigenous African knowledge accessible to broad audiences through its online presence and in-person installations and events.
The evening will include an engaging lecture, an interview segment, and a Q&A session with Mulenga Kapwepwe.
This event is made possible thanks to our sponsors, the Institute for Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies, and Zambians Promoting Leadership in America. We also extend our gratitude to our co-sponsors: Women Lead, the Department of Africana Studies, the Center for Advancement of Students and Alumni, the Association of Zambians in Atlanta, and the Organization of Zambians Abroad.
We hope you can join us for this enriching and enlightening event. Tickets are available for purchase here.
