The theme of ASAA’s 3rd Biennial Conference 2019 is African and Africana Knowledges: Past Representations, Current Discourses, Future Communities.

The aim of this year’s conference is to invite and initiate a scholarly stocktaking of the knowledge produced by Africans in Africa and the Diaspora in various forms—from scholarly work to artistic expressions—and to examine representations and current African realities and emerging futures with African knowledges. In other words, by stocktaking accomplishments and challenges facing African peoples globally, we hope to address the ideological basis of the current disproportions in the distribution of worth, power and wellbeing affecting Africans and diasporic Africans.

Call for papers/panels - abstracts are due in May 15 and May 30, 2019
