Abstract:In preparation for the 5th European Conference of African Studies (Lisbon, 2013), the authors in this book search for answers to questions such as: What is the impact of the current processes of globalization on African countries and African citizens? How should African Studies be engaged to gauge African dynamics, both at a local and a global level? What interdisciplinary means and tools should be brought in, to produce an epistemologically relevant view, or narrative, of the issues under analysis? The book is a compilation of essays, offering possible clues to research lines in African Studies for upcoming years, and raising epistemological and methodological issues. Contributions: African dynamics in a multipolar world (Ulf Engel and Manuel Joćo Ramos); Maputo home spaces: working for a home, working at home (Ana Bénard da Costa and Adriano Biza); Changing patterns of intimacy among young people in Africa (Alcinda Honwana); Listening and archiving migrant voices: how it all began (Alessandro Triulzi); Overcoming the cost to Africa of being a good neighbour to Denmark: unconstrained geography as an alternative to the end of history (John Davies); Corporate social responsibility in Africa: new trends for development? A new field for African Studies? (Virginie Tallio); Africa's demographics: a threat or a bonus?

Multipolarity and the paradoxes of time-space compression (Preben Kaarsholm); 'The road to Sudan, a pipe dream?': Kenya's new infrastructural dispensation in a multipolar world (Mark Lamont); The compulsion to do the right thing: development knowledge and its limits (Elisio Macamo); The study of Africa in a multipolar world: a perspective from within (Ebrima Sall).
