Call for (institutional) panels, roundtables and papers
Building on the multiple encounters, interactions and dialogues initiated at the 1st Africa-Asia Conference (Accra, Ghana, 2015), the 2nd international Conference ‘Africa-Asia, a New Axis of Knowledge’, to be held from 20-22 September 2018, in Dar es Salaam (Tanzania), seeks to deepen the explorations of new realities, and long histories connecting Africa and Asia. The conference aims to solidify an infrastructure of engagement bringing together scholars, artists, intellectuals and educators based in Africa and Asia as well as across the world to think both comparatively and holistically about the challenges and possibilities of cross-continental and trans-regional encounters.
