Migration, Settlement, and Memories Among Africans and Their Descendants in the Ibero-Atlantic
Dr. Judith A. Carney and Dr. Lorelle Semley make up this panel. As individuals and groups migrate from one geographical area and settle in another, they make connections between the spaces they leave and the spaces to which they travel. . In these movements, they engage in processes of transculturation, selectively shedding some beliefs and practices, taking on new ones, and contributing the beliefs and practices that they bring to their new place and society. . These processes of change occur within unequal relationships of power. . This panel will examine the movement of Africans and their descendants around the Ibero-Atlantic world, with a particular focus on the processes of transculturation, or the diffusion and infusion of symbolic memories, political ideologies and everyday practices into American spaces, noting the particularities of experience defined by race, caste, gender, and calidad.
