Dr. Felix Kumah-Abiwu, program coordinator for the iFacultyStaff Network, will host the first Kent State University Alumni Association Faculty Lecture for the spring 2017 semester.
The Faculty Lecture Series coordinated by the alumni association provides faculty the opportunity to showcase their research and expertise to alumni. This allows alumni to continue their education and experience a glimpse of the ideas that motivate our faculty members and the great work they do at Kent State!
Dr. Kumah-Abiwu will present on Thursday, February 16 from 6-7 p.m. in the Center for Philanthropy and Alumni Engagement. His presentation is:
Exploring the Complexities of Africa Beyond Western Media Coverage
Although Africa is complex in terms of its history, culture, language and often considered as the cradle of humanity/civilization, the general image of the continent in many Western countries, including the United States, is either about safari tours or a homogeneous place with widespread human suffering.
Come explore the complexities of Africa with special focus on alternative stories and counter narratives about the continent. The lecture will have entertaining documentary videos, visual images, and interactions.
This event is open to students, faculty, staff, and alumni! If you would like to attend, please visit the alumni association registration page by clicking here.
