The University of Edinburgh’s Centre of African Studies will host the 8th European Conference on African Studies, Europe’s largest and most international conference with an African focus. It will take place in the University's central campus on June 11-14 2019, and is organised on behalf of the Research Network of African Studies Centres in Europe AEGIS.
The conference brings together 1,500 leading researchers, policymakers, and leaders from across the world. There will also be a complementary series of artistic and cultural events, as well as various networking and capacity building events, including some particularly aimed at the next generation of African researchers. Further information will be made available here shortly. In the meantime use the menu above to view the theme, panels, travel information, etc.
The timetable has been updated to include ALL events taking place during the week of the conference, including the very diverse cultural programme. Clicking on the Panel sessions within that timetable shows that session's slice of the overall Panel schedule/grid. Registration remains open. We still have University accommodation reserved for delegates. For those letters applying for UK visas, there is a page with guidance and a method for requesting a tailored letter of support.
