CFP: Postmodernism and African Art ASAUK Biennial Conference, 9-11 Sep 2014 (Deadline 25 April)

A call for papers, from all scholars in any part of the world, to the panel, "Postmodernism and African Art", in the ASAUK Biennial Conference taking place at the University of Sussex, UK, 9-11 September, 2014. Convenors of this panel are Chidi Ugwu & C. Krydz Ikwuemesi of the University of Nigeria.

In African art, the search for eclecticism may take a dangerous turn as it often approximates self-denial and a glorification of the other. Certain questions arise in this light:

In what ways has the postmodernist attitude affected discourse on African art?

How can African art borrow from elsewhere without really losing its originality?

Where does the modern end in Africa and where does the postmodern begin?
