  • "Images of Africa: Stereotypes and Realities": October 22-24, 1998--Annual Conference of the Society of Research on African Cultures, Montclair State University (Upper Montclair, New Jersey)
    "The focus of this conference is premised on the recognition that Africa, like other non-western cultures, has suffered from what Edward Said has identified as the phenomenon of "Orientalism": throughout history Africa has been misrepresented and devalued when compared with western civilizations by images that stress negative values such as disorder, violence, anarchy, and laziness as enshrined, for instance, in historical, literary and artistic representations of Africa , as well as in documentary description (including that written by missionaries) and colonial policies. This conference will explore the history of western attempts to categorize 'the self' and 'the other' in terms of a hierarchy of superiority versus inferiority, a phenomenon which extends its roots as far back as Aristotelian philosophy: man versus woman, freeman versus slave, Greek versus barbarian."
