Afro-Asian Networks Visualised

Afro-Asian Networks Visualised brings together two historians (Su Lin Lewis, Bristol University, and Rachel Leow, Cambridge University) and a digital technologist (Tarim) to develop a database that maps the vibrant, transnational networks of activists, intellectuals, and artists moving between Africa and Asia in the 1950s and 1960s. This historical data has been contributed by a wider collaborative research network of historians, literary scholars, philosophers, and political scientists.

You can read more on the Afro-Asian Networks website and on the Afro-Asian Visions Blog

The Afro-Asian Networks Visualised project builds on research gathered by a group of scholars as shown in the website above.
