CHAM International conference in Lisbon, 17-20 July 2019

CHAM is proud to announce the organisation of its IV International Conference on Innovation, Invention and Memory in Africa. Following very successful previous editions we are now focusing on Africa, its heritage, challenges and achievements.

As a leading centre in the Humanities, CHAM aims in this edition to foster the presentation and discussion of multiple disciplinary approaches and contributions to the understanding of cultural, literary, historical, social, educational, artistic, ecological, and political landscapes in Africa. The conference will bring together students, academics, policymakers, community leaders, artists. It will promote a broad disciplinary approach to African Studies and a dynamic forum for discussion and knowledge production. A particular attention will be dedicated to the importance of future leaderships and to the role of young policymakers, researchers and artists.
