Dr. Julie Huntington Presents Paper at Dakar Conference

  • Dr. Julie Huntington, center, at the inaugural Dakar Translation Symposium in Dakar, Senegal.
On June 15, Julie Huntington, Ph.D., an associate professor of Writing, Literature, and Language, presented her paper “Transpoetics and the End of Necropolitics: Realizing the Vision of Édouard Glissant’s Tout-Monde” at the inaugural Dakar Translation Symposium in Dakar, Senegal.

Co-organized by Cheikh Anta Diop University, Assane Seck University, NYU Abu Dhabi, and Rutgers University, the plurilingual symposium featured a week-long series of exchanges among academics, artists, and writers working in Africa, Europe, and the Americas on themes related to Africa and her diasporas.

It was a rare opportunity to center international discourse on African and Diaspora Studies at a host institution in Africa. Beyond plurilingual creative and critical dialogues, the goal of this initiative is to create a Center for Translation at Assane Seck University in Ziguinchor, one of the most linguistically diverse areas in Senegal.
