CALL for PAPERS


Taking place at the end of the 20th century, "The Age of Extremes," this
international conference offers an excellent opportunity to look critically
at the African encounter with the twentieth century and with the wider
world. Occurring when the nature of African studies is itself under review,
it is also a suitable time to take stock of the past and present study of
Africa, and its future prospects. 

The conference will be held at St. George's College, University of Western
Australia (UWA), Perth, from Friday 26th to Sunday 28th of November 1999. It
will
also constitute the 22nd Annual Conference of the African Studies
Association of Australasia & the Pacific (AFSAAP), and be opened by the
Vice-Chancellor of UWA, Professor Deryck Schreuder, himself a major
contributor to African historiography and a past President of the Association. 

Papers are invited on any aspect of Africa, as well as on comparative
approaches. The overall conference theme is broad, but there is ample room
for specialized contributions, with papers reflecting the different
disciplines and wide-ranging interests of academics, professionals, and
postgraduates, as well as the wider diplomatic, government, aid/NGO, media,
cultural, labour/business, and African communities.
