African Studies and Research Forum (ASRF)
The 22nd Annual Conference, March 29-31, 2018
University of West Georgia, Carrollton, Georgia

Title: Toward the Building of a New Africa: Weaving the Past, the Present, and the Future

Brief Description: This 22nd Annual Conference of the African Studies and Research Forum (ASRF) invites participants to present papers on ways to build a new Africa by addressing past, present, and future issues pertaining to the African continent, people of African descent, institutions in the continent and the Diaspora, and relationships between Africa and other countries and regions around the world. The conference seeks to bring together researchers from around the globe and from various disciplines to take stock of current research and foster communication across approaches to the study of Africa. In keeping with the spirit of diversity, we welcome abstracts for individual papers and colloquia that engage with various topical and theoretical foci, types and sources of data, methodological questions, and practical applications. Selected papers will be considered for the ASRF’s journal and book series.
