Abstracts submission deadline for ASAA2022 extended to 31 Jan 2022

The deadline for submission of abstracts for the ASAA2022 conference has been extended to 31 January 2022, 23:59 PST (UTC−06:59 on Feb 1).

The Conference Committee is responding to numerous requests from, particularly younger scholars to extend the deadline. We hope that this extension allows sufficient time for accepted panellists to submit their abstracts as well as for scholars and other people affected by COVID-19 to submit their abstracts.

The call for abstracts is available in English, French, Arabic, Portuguese and Swahili. And we look forward to engaging with the authors on the next steps.

Kindly also note that as a consequence, the date of the abstracts acceptance notification automatically moves to 7 February 2022.

Call for abstracts now open

The ASSAA2022 Conference Committee invites proposals for abstracts. Proposals can be submitted via the dedicated online portal. The deadline for submission is 30th August.

Submissions can be made to a selection of confirmed panels that feed into the ASAA2022 conference theme: “Africa and the Human: Old questions, new imaginaries”. Panel formats include traditional panels, where up to five papers are presented, as well as roundtables, where a group of scholars discusses the topic at hand in front of an audience.  

Submitted proposals will be peer-reviewed, and authors will be notified by 14th September 2021. Selected full papers will be considered for publication in the HUMA-ASAA “Encounters” book series.  

Call for panels now open

The call for panels for the ASAA2022 is now open for proposal submissions and closes 30 June 2021. The decisions of the ASAA2022 Scientific Committee will be communicated on 11th July 2021.

ASAA encourages conveners (those proposing/organising a panel) to reflect on the conference theme and address issues outlined in the theme description.
