As an interdisciplinary conference for students in all fields of African Studies, we aim to provide a friendly and informal setting in which students can discuss their research and receive feedback from their peers. The deadline for submission of abstracts has been extended to FEBRUARY 27, 2004. Please visit our website to submit an abstract or mail them to the address above.
The conference begins on Friday evening, March 19, with a dinner and keynote address. This year, the address will be given by Dr. John Thornton, author of "Africa and Africans in the Formation of the Atlantic World" and "The Kongolese Saint Anthony: Dona Beatriz Kimpa Vita and the Antonian Movement, 1684-1706." There is a $15 conference fee, payable to the African Studies Center, when participants arrive in Boston. Please visit the website for further details.
