Oxford Brookes University, Oxford
This 60th anniversary year of the ASAUK’s existence, we have adopted a theme that invites reflection on the changes 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 also feature in academic environments. The generational focus of the conference acknowledges the centre of gravity for knowledge production as necessarily led from the African continent and also places emphasis on a future-oriented date stamp for knowledge production. We welcome stream proposals regarding these and related questions, especially from younger and early-career scholars.
The ASAUK Conference will be held from 29 to 31 August 2024 at Oxford Brookes University.
