Afro-Atlantic Histories

1 item left

A colossal, panoramic, much-needed appraisal of the visual cultures of Afro-Atlantic territories across six centuries. 

The book is motivated by the desire and need to draw parallels, frictions and dialogues around the visual cultures of Afro-Atlantic territories—their experiences, creations, worshiping and philosophy. The so-called Black Atlantic, to use the term coined by Paul Gilroy, is geography lacking precise borders, a fluid field where African experiences invade and occupy other nations, territories and cultures.
