The ASAUK biennial conference will be held at the University of Sussex and will run from 2pm on Tuesday Sept 9th to 3.30 pm on Thursday 11th September 2014.
While we are not attempting to give the conference an overarching 'theme', there are a number of streams (linked panels on a theme) which will run throughout the conference.
We are grateful to the below individuals, journals, centres and networks for offering a streams so that there can be sequential debate through the conference. As well as to all the individuals who have offered single panels on a wide variety of topics.
Congo Research Network (Katrien Pype and Reuben Loffman)
Culture Stream (Carli Coetzee / JACS)
African utopias/dystopias (Critical African Studies)
Publishing (Stephanie Kitchen / IAI)
Literature Stream (Ranka Primorac)
From Global Crisis to African Rising? (ROAPE)
Labour, Insecurity and Violence in South Africa (Maxim Bolt / Dina Rajak)
Lusophone Africa (Toby Green)
Sudan (Ahmed Al-Shahi)
A full list of the panels submitted so far can be found at the below link:
Panels at the conference will be an hour and a half long and we would recommend no more than 3 papers per panel to allow time for questions and debate.
There are still spaces available in the conference for panels but we would encourage interested parties to submit panels as soon as possible. It will only be possible for scholars to submit papers to your panel once it has been submitted onto the online system.
To submit a paper for the ASAUK Conference you need to register via the link below. Once you have registered you can then log into the online submission system and submit your paper.
