2012 Africa Conference

10th annual African conference at the University of Texas at Austin.

Sat, March 31, 2012 | University of Texas at Austin

This year’s theme is Women, Gender, and Sexualities in Africa, and it is our 10th annual African conference at the University of Texas at Austin. Issues involving Women, Gender, and Sexualities remain a vital component of the daily lives for most peoples across the globe and in particular for many Africans. The submitted abstracts look to ignite lively and interesting debates, and the panels will reflect the diverse and expansive effects popular cultures have made throughout Africa and across the world. This year’s conference will bring together distinguished scholars from various disciplines, countries, and backgrounds. We anticipate thought-provoking discussions to occur during the conference.

For more information, please see the Africa Conference website or contact Dr. Toyin Falola, the Convener of the Africa Conference, at toyin.falola@mail.utexas.edu.
