"Let Spirit Speak!
Cultural Journeys through the African Diaspora"
April 22-24, 2010
The City College of New York
New York, NY

In many traditional African cultures, there is unity in the material and the spiritual, in the seen and unseen. There is no difference between the sacred and the secular within this system of thought: everything is imbued with the spirit of God. Binaries that dominate Western thought (man/woman; mind/body; light/dark; good/evil) do not function in the same way within these cultures, as the emphasis is not on extremes but on balancing these radical differences, on reconciling them.

Call for Book Chapters
To all scholars interested in language, culture, and identity

Proposed Title:
Global English: Issues of Language, Culture, and Identity in the Arab World
