Intra-African Migration and Kinship Structures: Reframing Afropolitanism  

 

Afropolitanism has generated a great deal of debate and discussion, and many panels on Afropolitanism have been organized at African Literature Association conferences since the first such a panel in 2015.  These discussions often point out how Afropolitan concepts can question national and geographical affiliations and dislodge fixed ideas of belonging in the contemporary world. Too often the scholarship focuses on Africans’ connections to the West, a focus that has provoked significant controversies and disagreements.
