Navigating Homophobia

NIAS Seminar

Basile Ndjio, Professor of Anthropology at the University of Douala, will hold a seminar on his research into the role of ICT and social media in the homosexual community in Cameroon.

What role have the ICT played not only in the forging of transnational homosexual identities but also in the production of new homosexual spaces in Cameroon? In addition, what central role have the social media played in shaping the new forms of connections and mobility enabling many local LGBTI people to escape the homophobic politics of the Cameroon government?
