Africa: Politics and Societies South of the Sahara

Complicate Africa: “Bye bye, Barbar”

Posted in African Politics, Culture by ruben eberlein on January 26, 2015

Here is my text on cultural and social identities in Africa which appeared in the October 2014 issue of Konkret magazine. It is the fifth and final part of a small series on theory and daily life on the continent. I try to explain why ordinary people in Africa use a wide range of different identities in their daily lifes and report on the phenomenon Afropolitanism and the discussions about this concept.
