The ASAUK 2018 conference 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.

We received a large number of streams that are currently being registered on this website and on our conference organising system. Some streams are currently still being uploaded on the system and will appear as quickly as possible. A list of streams to date can be viewed on the website.

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.

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.

For applications and furthr information go here.

Please note:

Information on how to register chairs and discussants will be made available soon.

We are not yet able to provide the final prices for conference attendance but we expect to publish this late October 2017.

We strongly encourage all applicants to apply for conference funding independently. A small number of bursaries will be available to participants. Information will be published here soon.

ASAUK conferences do not limit participants’ contributions, and conference participants are allowed to present as many papers as are accepted by the organisers. Participants are also allowed to take on multiple duties as chairs and discussants.

The ASAUK is run solely by volunteers. Income from the conference pays for the cost of the hosting university’s infrastructure, organisation, subsidies for student presenters, bursaries for Africa-based scholars, prices, and the Association’s support of UK-African collaboration through Writing Workshops and Teaching Fellowships.
