by Aaron Britt Later this month the Museum of African Art will kick off a five-part lecture series at Columbia University titled Sightlines: New Perspectives on African Architecture and Urbanism. The free lectures are co-sponsored by the Institute of African Studies, the Committee on Global Thought, and the Center for African Education, all organizations at Columbia working on understanding Africa. I had a chance to chat with Erika Gee, the director of education and public programs at the Museum of African Art about what we'll see in Sightlines, which starts up January 26th with a talk by Senegalese artist Viyé Diba discussing his use of African objects in his art-making. Other lectures I'd get to if I were in New York include Rebecca Ginsburg's talk Black Women in White Johannesburg: Domestic Workers' Spatial Strategies under Apartheid on February 16th and Mary Jo Arnoldi's Monuments, Urbanism, and Modernity in Post-Colonial Mali. Here's Gee.
