II International Colloquium Colonialism, Anticolonialism and National Identities

“War and the Colonial Wars in Subsaharian Africa in the Twentieth Century (1914-1974)”



Português

In February 2008, the research line “Colonialismo, Anticolonialismo e Identidades Nacionais”, of the research group “História e Memória” of the Centro de Estudos Interdisciplinares do Século XX (CEIS20), organized the colloquium “Imagined Communities. Nation and Nationalism in Africa”, integrated in the “X Cultural Week of the University of Coimbra”. Benedict Anderson’s book (partially homonymous) inspirited the colloquium, whose main purpose was to theorize, document and illustrate the complexity that the concept of nationalism acquired in the African context. Over two days, senior experts, young researchers, and multiple related personalities developed and framed and analyzed the subject, especially, the lusophone African countries, that raised through the end of the Portuguese empire.

In order to continue and develop similar initiatives, the above mentioned research line intend to organize the II International Colloquium Colonialism, Anticolonialism and National Identities, entitled “War and the Colonial Wars in Subsaharian Africa in the Twentieth Century (1914-1974)”, which will take place on June 12-13, 2014. With the aim to honor the first centenary of the beginning of the World War I and the 40th anniversary of the end of the Colonial War/Liberation War, all researchers interested and scholars are encouraged to submit their proposals under the following themes:

1) From the Pacification Campaigns to the World War I
