From piety in Egypt to AIDs/HIV programming in South Africa, religion provides not only a vibrant subject of study in and of itself but also a lens to refract social, economic, and political relations. The Student Forum for African Studies conference in October 2009 at Stanford University, will bring together researchers from across many fields to discuss emerging approaches, local practice, and transnational movements of religion in Africa and the Diaspora. Possible topics could include: public policy and administration, public health, demography and mobility, art history, youth culture and music, film and performance art, law, literature, history, politics, or anthropology.
Abstracts or descriptions of the presentations, posters, or papers should be no longer than 250 words and should include contact information, name, mailing address, telephone number, affiliation, department and email address.
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.
DEADLINE: August 1, 2009
Abstracts or descriptions may be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
