Number of visits: 1184

The Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA) and USIU-Africa invite you to the Virtual launch of Prof. Paul Tiyambe Zeleza’ s book titled ’Africa and the Disruptions of the Twenty-first Century ’.

This collection of essays interrogates the repositioning of Africa and its diasporas in the unfolding disruptive transformations of the early twenty-first century. It is divided into five parts focusing on America’s racial dysfunctions, navigating global turbulence, Africa’s political dramas, the continent’s persistent mythologisation and disruptions in higher education. The book explores the overlapping crises that affect the continent and how these issues have an effect on the global sphere. The book challenges readers to imagine new ways to think about the continent, and what could be done to secure its future.

The launch will take place on Thursday, March 25, 2021, at 4 p.m. EAT or 1 p.m. GMT. To register for the event, which will be held on Zoom, please click on the link below.
