About the event:
What is cultural appropriation? Where is the line between ‘appropriation’ and ‘appreciation’? How can we critically examine the parameters?
The Royal African Society and the Firoz Lalji Centre for Africa will be sitting down with figures from across artistic and academic spheres to discuss the topic of cultural appropriation. Reflecting on examples and experiences navigating misgivings, the event will ask how we can move away from unequal relations towards a space of equal collaboration.

Prof. Madhu Krishnan – Professor of African, World and Comparative Literatures, Department of English, University of Bristol
