Lecture: “(Re)membering Resistances in the African Diaspora in post-Nazi Austria as ‘Counteramnesic Practice'”
at Genealogy of Amnesia Symposium, November 8-10, 2018 (mumok, Vienna/Austria)
Moving the silenced protest politics in the African diaspora during the distinct period of the early 1960s into the center of the analysis, the lecture unearths the urgency of “critical remembering” in light of the supressed presences of these marginalised histories.
Araba Evelyn Johnston-Arthur currently teaches at Howard University in Washington DC, where she is also completing her dissertation on resistances in the African Diaspora in Austria.
