African Studies and Research Forum

 The 22nd Annual Conference, March 29-31, 2018

 University of West Georgia, Carrollton, Georgia


Title:  Toward the Building of a New Africa: Weaving the Past, the Present, and the Future


Brief Description


This 22nd Annual Conference of the African Studies and Research Forum (ASRF) invites participants to present papers on ways to build a new Africa by addressing past, present, and future issues pertaining to the African continent, people of African descent, institutions in the continent and the Diaspora, and relationships between Africa and other countries and regions around the world. The conference seeks to bring together researchers from around the globe and from various disciplines to take stock of current research and foster communication across approaches to the study of Africa. In keeping with the spirit of diversity, we welcome abstracts for individual papers and colloquia that engage with various topical and theoretical foci, types and sources of data, methodological questions, and practical applications. Selected papers will be considered for the ASRF's journal and book series.


Submission Guidelines


All submissions should include the following: 

·         Author(s) contact information and other details:

·         Full name of principal presenter and contact information: affiliation, telephone number, mailing address, E-mail address. All return correspondence will be to this individual only.

·         Full names, affiliations, and E-mail addresses of co-presenters if any.


Abstract details:

 ·         Presentation title (15-word limit).

·         Abstract (300-word limit for individual papers; 300 words for Colloquia; colloquia submissions must also include an abstract for each paper, up to 300 words). An abstract should provide an extended description of the presentation for committee review.

·         Presentation Summary (50-word limit): A brief description to be included in the conference program.

·         Abstracts should be prepared for anonymous review (no reference to the author or the author's home institution in the abstract).


The proposal submission deadline is December 22, 2017. Early submissions are greatly encouraged.


To maximize participation opportunities at ASRF 2018, each individual is allowed two single-authored contributions and one co-authored contribution. (Presenting a paper, organizing a colloquium, and serving as a colloquium discussant each counts as one contribution.)


Individual Papers


Papers should be formal presentations that draw on theories and methods of one or more approaches on the topic.


Individual papers will be presented within a 20-minute period, plus ten minutes for discussion.




Colloquia involve the presentation of multiple prepared papers on a related topic or theme, followed by structured discussions of those papers. They are typically scheduled for two-hour blocks. If more time is needed, organizers can submit a series of single sessions (i.e. Part I, Part II, etc.); these will be individually reviewed.


Colloquium organizers should submit an abstract for the colloquium (of up to 300 words) and include an abstract (up to 300 words) for each paper. Please indicate the schedule for participants, with time allocated for opening and closing remarks, presentations, discussion, and audience response. Organizers may choose to participate in the session as a presenter or discussant.


Review Criteria


Review criteria include promise of a novel and productive contribution to the study of Africa; clarity and evidence of a well-organized, engaging presentation; and relevance to the ASRF 2018 theme. For colloquia, criteria also include a clearly indicated schedule of activities, with an appropriate amount of time for discussion and audience participation.


How to Submit Abstract(s)


Please send your abstract(s) to Abdul Karim Bangura as an E-mail attachment with a short note indicating your interest and the title ASRF 2018 Abstract on the subject line to the following E-mail address:  <asrf2018bangura@gmail.com>.
