Africa’s relationship with China is often viewed as double-edged and has become a space of contention both in the academy and mainstream discourses. Is it a curse or a cure? Re- or de-colonization? What of new questions of race and racism, migration, and miscegenation? The roundtable explores Africa and China’s evolving relationship as mediated through visual culture, including film, contemporary art, photography, map-making, and political ephemera. We approach this from multiple disciplinary and temporal standpoints, paying particular attention to the historical and multifaceted nature of China’s ongoing ties to Africa, from Ming dynasty trade routes, to nineteenth-century labor migration, to mid-century liberation struggles.
