Dear all (with apologies for cross-posting),

We are currently calling for papers and panels as part of a thematic stream, ‘New moral economies of care and welfare in Africa: a return to the Universal?’, which will be running from 8-10 September at the African Studies Association of the UK annual conference in Cardiff, UK. The stream is hosted by the ERC-Funded project, ‘Universal Health Coverage and the Public Good in Africa’.

Current sessions open for papers (from all relevant fields) include:

Thematic roundtable: ‘The universal and the public good - care and welfare in Africa’

Panel: ‘Generations of health and welfare in Africa: moral economy, history and the present’ (Convened by Holly Ashford and David Bannister)

Panel: ‘Beyond mobile money: Digital technologies, economic life and the public good in Africa’ (Convened by Tom Neumark)
