African Studies Association UK Biennial Conference 2024
The African Studies Association of the United Kingdom was founded in 1963 and is the national subject association for Africanists within the academic community. The objects of ASAUK as defined in its statutes are “to advance African Studies, particularly in the United Kingdom, by providing facilities for the interchange of information and ideas and the co-ordination of activities”.
ASAUK Conference 2024: Generation and Regeneration
In this 60th anniversary year of the ASAUK’s existence, we have adopted a theme that invites reflection on the changes that have taken place in knowledge production about and from Africa. Generational divides and inter-generational disappointment are critical themes in the understanding of contemporary African cultural, social and political dynamics, and they feature in many scholarly works about and from the continent. These same generational divides are also a feature of the academic environments in which many of us work. The generational focus of the conference acknowledges the centre of gravity for knowledge production as necessarily led from the African continent, and also places the emphasis on a future-oriented date stamp for knowledge production. We welcome stream proposals regarding these and related questions, and are particularly eager to invite younger and early career scholars to submit proposals.
The ASAUK Conference will be held on 29 to 31 August 2024 at Oxford Brookes University.
