Call for Papers: Second Annual Michigan State University Africanist Graduate Student Conference
Knowledge of Africa: New Researchers and the Next Fifty Years
Michigan State University graduate students and the African Studies Center at MSU are hosting a conference with the intent to foster an engaging atmosphere in which graduate students can discuss their research and receive important feedback. The conference is interdisciplinary and open to students at all levels of their graduate careers. We hope to receive submissions that present research proposals, research designs, dissertation or thesis chapters, methodological models, work in progress, outlines of dissertation and preliminary research findings. Michigan State University has over 175 faculty members that focus on Africa and some faculty will serve as discussants in the hope that they will offer constructive feedback to the conference participants. The conference is also designed to help prepare students, those who will be the career Africanists of the next fifty years, who will present at the 2008 African Studies Association Meeting “Knowledge of Africa: The Next Fifty Years” to be held in Chicago.
Abstracts Due: August 29, 2008
Email submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org

Conference will be held September 26-27, 2008 at Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan.
