Nka Roundtable Discussion

Welcome to this august roundtable, organized by Nka: Journal of Contemporary African Art. With a panel of 15 influential scholars in the field today, we will, in the next several weeks, engage crucial issues confronting the field and survey the gains, challenges, and prospects of contemporary African art within the discipline of art history. Readers are encouraged to send posts; however these will be moderated. This roundtable will be the first collaboration between with Duke University Press and Nka.
