The Institute for the African Child has extended the abstract deadline for the Including Children: Celebrating 10 years of the Institute for the African Child to January 5, 2009. The Institute for the African Child (IAC) was established in 1999 to expand the Academic discourse to include a focus on children’s issues in Africa.
Including Children will celebrate the tenth anniversary of the IAC by bringing together Africanists from inside and outside the Academy to assess the current state of knowledge about childhood in Africa and to explore directions for the future. Participants will have the opportunity to present work on issues that impact Africa’s children; interact with colleagues working in related areas; and network with organizations working with Africa’s children.
