MU’s Afro-Romance Institute for Languages and Literature of the African Diaspora will host “Transnational Identities: Afro-Hispanic Literature of European Exile” on Friday and Saturday.

The conference will focus on the writings of Afro-Hispanic authors in exile and have papers presented on their works. There will be a discussion on the literature of Equatorial Guinea, a presentation on the country’s literature and music, and a session on African literature and the African Diaspora.

Scholars from across the United States and Canada will attend the event with MU visiting professor Donato Ndongo-Bidyogo, a writer from Equatorial Guinea who lives in Spain, and Lucia Charun-Illescas, a Peruvian writer living in Germany, as featured speakers. The two will discuss their experiences as authors in exile.

The conference is open to the public, and a schedule of events can be found on the Afro-Romance Institute Web site, afroroma.
