Abstract:At the Bayreuth meeting of the African Literature Association, in the northern summer of 2015, a series of panels was convened by the Journal of African Cultural Studies. A number of speakers were invited to respond to the challenge to 'reboot' the term 'Afropolitan', to see whether they could re-invigorate understandings of the origins (misspelt, mis-ascribed, lost, deleted, haunted, spectral), in order to find new and activist futures for it. Amongst the speakers in the roundtable discussion were Emma Dabiri, Chielozona Eze, Grace A. Musila, and Stephanie Bosch Santana. The papers published in this special section grew out of that conversation. Contributions: Introduction (Carli Coetzee); 'Why I am (still) not an Afropolitan' (Emma Dabiri); Part-Time Africans, Europolitans and 'Africa lite' (Grace A. Musila); 'We, Afropolitans' (Chielozona Eze); Exorcizing the future: Afropolitanism's spectral origins (Stephanie Bosch Santana). [ASC Leiden abstract]
