Welcome to H-AfrArts, Expressive Cultures of Africa. H-AfrArts is composed of two parts, a discussion list and a web site cosponsored by Humanities and Social Sciences OnLine (H-Net) and the Arts Council of the African Studies Association (ACASA). Its content focuses on the expressive cultures of Africa and the African Diaspora.
What passes for theory in African Urban Studies is dominated predominantly by cases and examples from Western cities and critics. Thus we find that thinkers like Walter Benjamin, Henri Lefebvre, Edward Soja, and Michel Foucault are the main theorists that are drawn upon whereas African cities tend to elude much of this theory.
