The ASAUK 2018 conference (11-13 September 2018, University of Birmingham, UK) celebrates the diversity and interdisciplinarity of the study of Africa. To build networks among scholars interested in similar topics or fields, the conference includes several thematic streams.
Papers and panels can be submitted to the conference’s thematic streams or directly to the conference organisers.
The deadline for submissions is 16 February 2018.
Stream organisers are responsible for organising at least two thematically linked panels, with a panel normally consisting of a minimum of three paper presenters and one chair. They are also expected to respond to proposals from colleagues who wish to contribute panels or individual papers to their stream.
A list of all the streams with short abstracts and details on the organisers can be viewed on the website via this link: http://www.asauk.net/activity/streams-asauk-2018/
All individuals who would like to submit papers and panels or who would like to attend the conference will have to register on our conference organising system. This can be found by clicking on the following link: https://www.conference-service.com/ASAUK2018/
For clarification and the convenience of our delegates we have drawn up How To guides with detailed step by step information on how to register on the system, how to submit an abstract/paper and how to submit a panel. Panel abstracts must include the names of at least two papers and their presenters.
We have a small number of scholarships for early career African scholars available.
