On signalera notamment les panels suivants :

Making Home in Bordelands. Urban-Rural Mobility in the Margins of the Post-Colonial State
This panel proposes to move critical focus onto topics still largely under-studied : professional mobility "à rebours" [in the opposite direction], from cosmopolitan African capitals to borderlands. How urban-rural mobility redefine social and individual identities in their relation to the State ?

Non-Penal Confinement in Africa
This panel examines the place of non-penal spaces of confinement, where social, economic and political control is exercised. It probes the suppression of "dangerous classes" by political authorities, and highlights the geographies of control linking incarceration in cities and in rural areas.

Urban Scenographies of Political Power in Africa before 1900
This panel focusses on African cities before 1900, examining through an interdisciplinary approach how political power is materially embodied and symbolically staged in the urban space through a variety of architectural interventions, visual representations, discourses and cultural practices.
