CALL FOR PAPER
The University of Edinburgh, Centre of African Studies and the Global Development Academy hope you will join them in revisiting these key debates in African Studies, and beyond, as they seek to blaze new trails and engage old struggles. Our 21st century generation of scholars is technologically savvy, increasingly interconnected, and yet, faced with persistently rigid political and institutional structures. Panels will address a range of thematic topics and active approaches to decolonizing the academy. We are soliciting papers that engage with issues of agency, legitimacy, and representation; empirical and analytical findings, research methods, and academic practice; and structural and institutional opportunities and obstacles.
If you would like to present a paper, please send the following: Your paper title, Abstract (400-500 words), Author bio (200 words) and Indicate to which panel/theme you are submitting, and any technical equipment your presentation may require
