CFP: Rwanda After 1994: Stories of Change

Conference: Rwanda After 1994: Stories of Change
Place: University of St Andrews, Scotland, United Kingdom
Date: July 6, 2018
Submission deadline for abstracts: December 11, 2017
Description: »Since 1994 Rwanda has undergone remarkable shifts and transitions: culturally, economically, and educationally the country has gone from strength to strength. This conference seeks to gather diverse perspectives on the changing social and cultural fabric of Rwanda in the past 24 years. We invite participants to consider the context of these changes, particularly in relation to the ongoing importance of remembering and in wider developments in the Great Lakes and East Africa regions. Equally we are keen to explore what stories of change are emerging from Rwanda: creative writing and testimonies, as well as national, regional, and international political narratives. Which frameworks might be most useful for understanding different kinds of change? And looking forwards, what new directions are emerging, and how will Rwanda’s trajectory be shaped by other global factors?«
