Event Description
Panelists Afe Adogame, Maxwell M. Upson Professor of Religion and Society at Princeton Theological Seminary; Lina Benabdallah, assistant professor of politics and international affairs at Wake Forest University; Jacob Dlamini, associate professor of history; Yoon Jung Park, executive director at the China Research Network and adjunct professor of African studies at Georgetown University examine the photographs of acclaimed Nigerian-Cameroonian artist Samuel Fosso.


The photographs present unique opportunities for discussion about issues related to the history and politics of postcolonial Africa. Moving beyond the scope of art history, these panelists will consider Fosso’s art through the lens of their varied scholarly backgrounds in the fields of history, politics and religion.

The event is moderated by Iheanyi Onwuegbucha, doctoral student in the Department of Art and Archeology. A reception will follow.
