The 2018 ASAUK Conference celebrates the diversity and interdisciplinarity of the study of Africa. The conference is a key event for scholars working on and in Africa. The ASAUK 2016 conference at the University of Cambridge attracted over 650 delegates from many academic disciplines and parts of the world. With 202 panels, the programme was extraordinarily rich and varied and resulted in engaged collaboration across the different disciplines that encompass the study of Africa.
