‘Africa: diversity and development’
42nd AFSAAP Annual Conference
Call for Papers
26-27 November 2019
St Margaret’s College, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand
The African Studies Association of Australasia and the Pacific (AFSAAP) invites submissions for its 2019 conference from academics, researchers, students, practitioners and policy makers, and the diaspora community, with interests in African studies, both on the African continent and in the Australasia and Pacific region. In 2019, the conference theme is ‘Africa: Diversity and Development’. The conference seeks to explore the richness of the continent and its diversity in a wide range of social, economic, political and cultural dimensions, while simultaneously discussing development options, challenges and experiences.
Papers from all disciplines considering African issues in a broad range of topics, such as culture, history, literature, physical, social and economic development, environment, politics, geography, ecology, demography, health, education, migration, media, aid, climate change, natural and human-induced disasters, civil society and gender are welcomed.
Please send abstracts not exceeding 300 words in length to:
AFSAAPconference at otago.ac.nz<mailto:AFSAAPconference at otago.ac.nz> by 30 June 2019. Acceptance of Abstracts will be notified by 1st August 2019.
What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Getting to Dunedin
There are direct Virgin flights from Brisbane to Dunedin. Alternatively, delegates can fly from Melbourne, Perth or Sydney via Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch to Dunedin (or from Adelaide and Canberra via those cities). Regular flights (1 hour duration) connect Christchurch and Dunedin. Shuttle buses and taxis meet all flights at Dunedin Airport and can take delegates to the conference venue and accommodation.
