1st International Seminar “The search for identity: Canary Islands-Africa in the patrimonial sources”

From 13 to 15 November 2017 in the Gabinete Literario
I Seminario Internacional "La búsqueda de la identidad: Canarias-África en las fuentes patrimoniales". Del 13 al 15 de noviembre de 2017 en el Gabinete Literario
Dr Germán Santana Pérez and journalist José Naranjo Noble are the leaders of this international seminar which, in its first meeting, aims to examine the well-known and well-documented ancient relationship between the Canary Islands and its closest geographic neighbour, West Africa.

The relationship between the two shores (that has allowed the creation of ties that still exist today) is well known, but: How did we begin to relate? What do the historical archives of each region say about the other? Did you know that there was nearly a diplomatic conflict when West Africa was under French rule?

A select group of experts, who have scrutinized the historical archives in order to document this relationship between the Canary Islands and Africa, are coming to talk to us about this and other discoveries.

We can assume that many of these contacts were not documented, but we will be told about what is recorded from 13 to 15 November in the Las Palmas de Gran Canaria Gabinete Literario by the experts attending this seminar.

Attendance is free and open to all and will be granted 8 hours by the Faculty of Geography and History of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria
