African Conversations Series

Thursday, October 28, 2021
1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Join us at the next African Conversations Series for an insightful discussion related to Africa’s history, led by two Africa Institute members who recently defended their PhD theses.

Nassisse Solomon is currently the Program Coordinator for the Global Health Systems MMASc. Her PhD thesis was on the topic: "Rooted in History , Representations and Perceptions of Canadian Identities in Canada". Her work examines intersections in Canadian and Ethiopian History which facilitated the mass representation of Ethiopian identities in Canada. 

Chinelo Ezenwa is a community connector with the City of London. She is also a part time faculty member and writing specialist at the King’s University College. Her PhD research was on the topic: “Bible Translations and Literary Responses: Re-reading Missionary Interventions in Africa through Local Perspectives”. Through her work, Chinelo reflects on the implications of 19th century missionary interventions for Africans, by drawing attention to how missionary translations and schooling facilitated colonial rule in Africa.
