The symposium examines the legacies of the Italian occupation of Ethiopia as experienced by Ethiopians and conveyed through artistic expression. In the east African country, visual and storytelling cultures, rather than traditional historical accounts, have been primary vehicles of post-colonial expression. The event’s three panels look at how performance, writing and storytelling, and visual arts have narrated this period and its legacies for several generations.
The event is free and open to the public.
Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis.
