Submissions: To encourage discourse on the challenges and opportunities facing Africans in the post-colonial context of urbanization, the African Activist Association at UCLA is hosting a symposium to examine new configurations of African cities. Possible topics could include: public policy and administration, public health, demography and mobility, architecture and art of the city, youth culture and music, film and performance art, religion and spirituality, or law. Abstracts or descriptions of the presentations should be no longer than 250 words and should include contact information, name, mailing address, telephone number, affiliation, department, and email address. Participants will have the option of submitting, at a later date, copies of their presentations to be considered for publication in Ufahamu: A Journal of African Studies.
Eligibility: Although we strongly encourage graduate students, we also welcome submissions from undergraduates, professionals, post-doctoral researchers, lecturers, professors, activists, and practitioners. Papers and presentations on topics related to Africa in ALL DISCIPLINES and from ALL INSTITUTIONS, PROGRAMS and ORGANIZATIONS will be considered.
