Ikem S. Okoye

​Professor Ikem S. Okoye​ was an invited speaker at a three-day Dumbarton Oaks symposium on African Landscapes concluded May 11, 2013. Okoye's talk "Good Bush, Bad Bush: Representing our Natures in Historical Southern Nigerian landscapes," argued that the cultured extension of a moral, representational universe over the terrain of southern Nigeria indicates that historical African societies possessed concepts, procedures and productions of "the landscape" (including its representation in art) surprisingly comparable to those that emerged in European and American history. A longer synopsis of the earlier parts of the symposium is found at http://dirt.asla.org/2013/05/14/13774/.
