Ngugi wa Thiong’o delivers the opening keynote lecture of the Calloloo conference

'The Trans-Atlantic, the Diaspora, and Africa' was held at Pembroke College, Oxford, in November 2013. This conference advances and challenges the newest theoretical scholarship emerging from the interdisciplinary fields of U.S.A.-derived Diaspora Studies and British-derived Trans-Atlantic Studies, as these fields have diverged and converged in relation to the idea of Africa. 'The Trans-Atlantic, the Diaspora, and Africa' also showcases African Diasporan creative writers, established and emerging, from Africa, the Caribbean, the UK, and the USA for readings in Oxford and London.
