Book Launch: African Renaissance and the Afro-Arab Spring

September 25, 2015
11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Location: Healy Hall Riggs Library Map

In The African Renaissance and the Afro-Arab Spring, experts shed important light on a continent's difficult history and undertake a critical conversation about whether and how the desire for radical change holds the possibility of a new beginning for Africa, which may well reshape the contours of global affairs.

Charles Villa-Vicencio joined contributors Katherine Marshall, Fathali Moghaddam, Ebrahim Rasool, Ibrahim Sharqieh, and Scott Taylor to reflect on ways in which recent events across Africa are, and are not, linked to an African Reawakening. John Voll moderated the discussion. A reception and book signing followed the conversation.

This event is co-sponsored by the Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding; the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs; Georgetown's Conflict Resolution program; and the World for All Foundation.
