Description: After half a century of independence, the forging of national integration remains a major preoccupation of the vast majority of African states. The task of forging a nation out of a multiplicity of ethnic nationalities has been daunting, and ethnic and racial divisions continue to threaten the stability of many African states. African leaders have articulated numerous policies and programmes to promote nation-building, but the achievements have been largely modest.

We are delighted to announce that the following symposium will take place on Friday-Saturday, 29-30 January 2016, in cooperation with the Graduate School for East and South East European Studies at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich, Germany.
This panel welcomes papers that examine the treatment of race and racial relations in comic books, whether in superhero narratives, graphic memoirs, web comics, or other forms of sequential art both inside and outside the United States. How are comics used to document and represent racialized identities? How have the medium and its surrounding fan communities adapted earlier content to speak to current topics?
I am a Phd candidate at Purdue University and I am trying to put together a panel for the AAS 2016 conference to be held at Seattle. Very broadly the panel will interrogate the construction of gender identity through domestic practices/rituals, religious rituals being one of them. If you would like to participate in this panel please email me at email@example.com by July 25, 2015. The deadline for panel submission is August 6, 2015.
We invite paper proposals for a session at the EAUH 2016 on knowledge transfer between cities in Europe’s Borderlands 1880 -1945:
Until now the cities of Eastern and Southern Europe have mainly been looked at through the prism of migration and institutions of technology transfer (such as universities). Implicitly or explicitly this suggests a transfer of knowledge and practices from the center to the periphery and hence a clear epistemological hierarchy.
