“The Third World was not a place. It was a project,” writes Vijay Prashad in his book the Darker Nations: A People’s History of the Third World. We map the project via its multiples manifestations and imaginings – from Bandung and Cairo as the Capital of African Liberation Movements, to the Planetary Assembly in Tanzania,on to the Non Aligned conference and failed 2nd Bandung, to the Solidarity Conference of the people of Asia, Africa and Latin America, in Winneba, Havana and Conakry to its termination in Algiers, along the way the Sino-Soviet conflict, tri-continentalism and the Afro Asian Writers Association. This and other maps in In the new Chronic, On Circulations and the African Imagination of a Borderless World.
