Cosmology across Cultures, vol. 409 (2009) pp. 138-144 Published by ASP Conference series 409
Focusing on the African continent, this presentation selects origin stories in cosmologies scattered throughout Africa. This research diverges from my work on applied astronomy knowledge in livelihood systems, to begin to probe the meanings and importance people place on their cosmologies. Including both the general and the unique, I am looking for a latitude dependence that would echo Aveni’s Tropical Archaeoastronomy Theory, examining origins from the sky (with a future return to the sky), and dynamic or evolving universes among these cosmologies.
