The Institute of African Studies at Emory University is pleased to host a conversation with Teju Cole as the kick-off for the Fall 2021 symposium Think Again! African Arts, Museum Politics, and Savior Complexes.

We invite you to join us for this one-day virtual event as we hear from a broad range of university and museum-based professionals—some located in African institutions and others in North American ones—to consider different power dynamics and other concerns at play and to the discuss the topic of restitution and demands for action. 

The aim is to listen carefully to a variety of informed perspectives, including ones that may unsettle, inconvenience, or otherwise prompt us to rethink what we thought we knew.
