Résumé/Présentation "[...] Sixty years after the independence of most sub-Saharan African former colonies, this workshop aims to explore the enduring influence of this Belgian colonial past in Belgium, its former colonial domains and beyond. We will attempt to privilege here cultural issues pertaining to the emergence of critical voices, whether intellectuals in the human sciences (e.g. history and anthropology), novelists, playwrights, musicians, artists, art critics, journalists, and art curators; and, as already indicated above, favour particular past and/or contemporary events through which the many intertwinements between Central Africa and Belgium can be examined."
