Special issue of journal Critical Interventions on «Fractals in Global Africa»

Critical Interventions welcomes our readers to a very exciting issue about fractals in African arts and visual cultures, produced by guest editors Ron Eglash and Audrey Bennett. I first met Ron Eglash at the 2007 TEDGlobal Conference in Arusha Tanzania where he presented a talk about fractals and mathematical concepts in African arts and visual culture, drawn from his groundbreaking book African Fractals. I had however heard of him prior to this encounter a couple of years earlier, when I was conducting research for an article on ethno-mathematics and Eglash’s name came up as someone dong interesting work on the subject. I attended his TED talk and it was very well received.
