Pan-Africanism and the African Diaspora in Europe

Seminarium
The Pufendorf IAS´ Advanced Studygroup "Moves Towards an Anti-colonial Academy" invite to an open seminar with Michael McEachrane, Visiting Researcher at the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law.

"What does Pan-Africanism mean to Europe? Although the first Pan-African conferences all took place in Europe (beginning with the one in London 1900), were led by African descendants residing in Europe and were focused on combating European colonialism—Pan-Africanism is rarely if ever conceptualized as a part of European histories and realities. However, there is an argument to be made that Pan-Africanism should be seen as part of European history and also as a framework for conceptualizing what it means to be Black in Europe". 

 

Michael McEachrane is a Visiting Researcher at the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law in Lund. He has a PhD (with distinction) in Philosophy from Åbo Akademi University in Finland. His current research focuses on postcolonial/decolonial perspectives on human rights and racial discrimination. Among his work are the book Afro-Nordic Landscapes: Equality and Race in Northern Europe (Routledge, 2014), a recent article in the Human Rights Review, “Universal Human Rights and the Coloniality of Race in Sweden” (2018) and a forthcoming book chapter, "Situating Afro-/African Swedish Studies". McEachrane is also a seasoned international human rights advocate and occasional expert advisor to the UN OHCHR on people of African descent.
