Please join us for a virtual book launch event for an essay collection on “African Futures”, edited by Clemens Greiner, Steven van Wolputte and Michael Bollig published by Brill as part of the Africa-Europe Group for Interdisciplinary Studies Series (AEGIS series). The essays in this collection are written to make readers (re)consider capacities and potenials on the African continent. The texts are short, crisp and provocative, cover a wide variety of topics, and challenge rather than analyze. The book was compiled as a thematic conference volume of the ECAS9 "African Futures", which was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic and will now take place in Cologne in 2023. This webinar will be moderated by Amanda Hammar (President of AEGIS, Copenhagen) and will introduce selected chapters covering a wide range of topics from health futures, forest crimes, Covid-19 to national parks and the futures of youth artists from Africa.
