Call for Panels 
The Nordic Africa Days (NAD) is the biennial international conference of the Nordic Africa Institute and it has been organized since 1999 in the Nordic countries. NAD invites panel organizers/researchers working on Africa-related knowledge production and representing the state of the art on African studies.
The Nordic Africa Days 2016 has a thematic focus on gender relations in contemporary Africa. Gender has been central in the Nordic cooperation with Africa, and will continue to be a major focus also in the global development agenda.
Although NAD 2016 has a thematic focus on gender, it is open to panel proposals on a variety of subjects within African studies.
The conference aims to be a forum for academic exchange and intellectual development, where contributions from a new generation of researchers are important and welcome. PhD candidates, other young scholars and Africa based scholars are particularly encouraged to participate in the conference. The conference also provides a venue for dialogue between Africa specialists within academic and policy arenas.
All African region studies - lusophone, francophone or angolphone - are welcome as well as those focusing on Africa relations and the world.
Panel proposals should be submitted to no later than 3 March 2016.
