Thematic areas

MEBAO’s main research topics include cultural heritage (both tangible and intangible), its use and preservation, slavery and the public memory of its history in West Africa and the African diaspora, forms of artistic and ritual performance, the production of historical knowledge in contemporary contexts and in relation to the socio-institutional and political developments of the new millennium.

In recent years MEBAO’s research group has worked in close collaboration with two Projects of National Interest (PRIN), “Forms of dependence within cultural transition” (PRIN 2001-2003) and “From dependence to citizenship” (PRIN 2004-2006), both coordinated by Prof. Pier Giorgio Solinas of the University of Siena.
