Dance Performances in Post-Genocide Rwanda: Continuity, Creativity and Identity

Year 2014
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Over the last decade, Rwanda has witnessed a revival of ‘traditional’ dances, which are staged as a unified cultural performance. This revival gives expression to the dynamism that characterizes this East-African country in its drive to reconstruct itself after the devastation of the 1994 genocide. It also testifies to the country’s willingness to bypass the ‘ethnic’ and regional cleavages that were so critical during the period of genocide and to achieve a true sense of national unity and identity. The object of the project, which is situated at the intersection of Dance Studies and Anthropology, is to study the evolution of Rwandan dances with regard to their role in constructing the ‘New Rwanda’. The study will be microscopic and will be based on long-term fieldwork combining participation, observation and in-depth interviews. It will focus on the troupe Inganzo Ngari, which is currently considered Kigali’s best dance troupe and which performs very regularly at government sponsored or directly government related events. The study will analyse the creative reconfiguration of the troupe’s repertoire and especially the way elements stemming from different regions, periods and sociocultural belonging are creatively assembled in order to communicate the image of a unified, modern Rwanda which, nonetheless, remains rooted in its past. Attention will also be given to the growing emphasis on the spectacular side of the performance and the increased attention being given to uniformity. In line with the affirmation of Inganzo’s choreographers that Chinese folkloric dances have inspired them in reconfiguring Rwandan dances, the study will further examine how processes of globalization contribute to remodel Rwandan specificity. More broadly, by exploring dance in its dual aspect of rhythmic flow and visual form it intends to shed light on the role of this medium in contemporary societies, inasmuch as they manifest a tension between global circulation and rigid nationalism.

Genocide Commemoration in the Rwandan Diaspora

Year 2018
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
This project explores commemorative responses to the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda, seeking to build an understanding of the forms of commemoration taking place among Rwandan genocide survivors living in the diaspora. Focusing on three European case study areas – Belgium, France and the UK – it will examine the myriad ways in which community groups, authors, artists and creative practitioners are communicating their experiences of violence and exile to the host societies, and will investigate the impact of place and displacement on commemorative practices within diasporic communities. As the 25th anniversary of the 1994 Genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda approaches, this project will make an important and timely contribution to the field of Cultural Memory Studies, advancing new critical paradigms – conceptualised in terms of a particular form of ‘exilic memory’ – for understanding the articulation and transcultural circulation of memory in specific diasporic locations. It is significant that the project will be completed in Belgium, given the colonial history shared by the two countries. The primary outputs of the project will include the completion of a monograph, the organisation of an interdisciplinary symposium and the curation of an exhibition at the Royal Museum for Central Africa in Brussels, which will feature the work of Rwandan diasporic artists and writers. These dissemination and outreach activities, combined with the personalised training offered by Ghent University’s Postdoctoral Talent Management programme, will enable the researcher to acquire new competencies and multidisciplinary knowledge and to further enhance her scholarly profile and publications, which will be crucial for reaching a position of professional maturity. The MSCA-IF at Ghent University will also offer the researcher the opportunity to establish international collaborations in her field and will facilitate outstanding intellectual exchange.

RURBANAFRICA

Year 2012
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
Africa currently has a low proportion of its population living in cities and towns. This is rapidly changing, however, and by the middle of this century it is predicted that the majority of Africans will be urban residents. Understanding the connections between rural areas and cities is thus vital for planning for the future needs of the residents of sub-Saharan African countries. For this purpose, the overall objective of the African Rural-City Connections (RurbanAfrica) project has been to explore the connections between rural transformations, mobility, and urbanization processes and analyze how these contribute to an understanding of the scale, nature and location of poverty in sub-Saharan Africa. This has included critically scrutinizing the assumption that migration from rural areas to cities is one of the major development challenges faced by national and local governments in their efforts to stimulate economic growth and curb poverty. The project has been in operation from April 2012 to March 2016 and has focused on four sub-Saharan African countries: Ghana, Cameroon, Rwanda and Tanzania. Research was led by the University of Copenhagen and organized into four thematic work packages; Agricultural Transformation, Rural Livelihoods, City Dynamics, and Access to Services; and two work packages working on dissemination and policy dialogues and management and syntheses.

African Rural-City Connections

Year 2012
Taxonomy View Taxonomy Associations
Abstract
The overall objective of the African Rural-City Connections (RurbanAfrica) project is to explore the connections between rural transformations, mobility, and urbanization processes and analyze how these contribute to an understanding of the scale, nature and location of poverty in sub-Saharan Africa. The RurbanAfrica project will advance the research agenda on rural-city connections in sub-Saharan Africa by addressing a range of crucial components: agricultural transformations, rural livelihoods, city dynamics, and access to services in cities. In this respect the project will challenge a number of generally accepted ‘truths’ about rural and city development, and the importance and implication of migration in shaping these. It will thereby question the overall negative interpretations of the economic role of rural-urban mobility and migration in sub-Saharan Africa and generate new insights into the relationship between rural-city connections and poverty dynamics. The project will include nine partners; four European, one international, and four sub-Saharan African. RurbanAfrica focuses on four country cases: Rwanda, Tanzania, Cameroon and Ghana and examine in-depth two rural-city connections in each of the case countries. Research is organized into six work packages: Agricultural transformation, rural livelihoods, city dynamics, access to services, knowledge platform and policy dialogue, and synthesis, dissemination and management. Central to the approach is the on-going integration of policy research, policy dialogue, knowledge sharing and empirical research. Through ongoing collaboration between senior and junior researchers from European and sub-Saharan African partners, and co-supervising of PhD students, the project will contribute to capacity building and potentially impact curriculum development. The research and dissemination process will be supported by a scientific advisory board, with members from European and sub-Saharan African research institutions.
