Representations and Social Change in Africa
A free one-day international symposium on the bicentenary of David Livingstone
13 May 2013
Arts Tower – University of Sheffield
This year we are celebrating 200 years of the birth of David Livingstone, one of the most popular heroes of Victorian Britain. An explorer of Africa, Livingstone's work and writings were responsible in part for shaping our ideas about that continent and defining media discourses for many years afterwards.
This event commemorates Livingstone's birth with an interdisciplinary symposium about Media Representations and Social Change in Africa. It is convened by the Centre for the Study of Journalism and History with the joint sponsorship of the Interdisciplinary Centre of the Social Sciences (ICOSS) and the Department of Journalism Studies at the University of Sheffield.
Admission to the symposium is free of charge and no pre-registration is required. For more information please email Dr Jairo Lugo-Ogando: email@example.com.
