As part of an ongoing research collaboration of the ‘Afro-Asian Networks Research Collective’, the Department of History’s Dr Gerard McCann has contributed an article ‘Where was the Afro in Afro-Asian Solidarity? Africa’s “Bandung moment” in 1950s Asia’ to a new special edition of the Journal of World History, entitled ‘Other Bandungs: Afro-Asian Internationalisms in the Early Cold War’ (volume 30, numbers 1 & 2, 2019).
Another special edition from the collective – ‘Trade Union Networks and the Politics of Expertise in an Age of Afro-Asian Solidarity’ – is forthcoming in Journal of Social History (volume 53, number 2, December 2019).
A data visualisation that maps the major conferences of the Afro-Asian era in the 1950s and 1960s, including locations, delegates, delegate biographies, and countries of origin, is under construction for release in 2019.
The collective always welcomes new members, particularly colleagues based in the global south. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
