Wednesday, 27 August 2014: In partnership with the Department of Literature, University of Nairobi

Literary Colloquium: Cosmopolitanism in Kenya At 50 Venue: Department of Literature, University of Nairobi (by invitation only)
We are inviting conversations that cut across ethnic, racial, regional, religious, cultural, personal, communal and oceanic differences and similarities. We wish to provoke discussions on how Kenyans, here and in the diaspora; friends of Kenya; visitors; and any other interested persons can connect as humans across these divides, differences and similarities; and how to retain our humanity in the age of cultural erasure, market hegemony or even ethno-national jingoism. We hope that these reflections will contribute to the debate in Kenya on how to make the nation more inclusive and egalitarian beyond our 50th anniversary of independence. We intend to produce a special AwaaZ SAMOSA Souvenir to commemorate the colloquium and the Festival as a whole. Contact: editors@awaazmagazine.com samosa@awaazmagazine.com
