6th EUROPEAN CONFERENCE ON AFRICAN STUDIES
The call for panels closes 23 July 2014 – 8pm.
All panel proposals must be made via the online form (see below the “Propose a panel” button).
On the form, you will be asked to provide your first and last names and institutional affiliation, the title of your panel and an abstract of no more than 1500 characters (spaces included).
As AEGIS is a tri-lingual organisation, the organising committee would be grateful if panel titles and abstracts could be submitted in two languages – English and one of AEGIS’ other two working languages: French or Portuguese.
To facilitate the work of the scientific committee, when submitting a panel proposal, conveners are asked to identify the disciplinary field(s) that best describe(s) the panel’s subject matter.
All panels will last an hour and a half and will include a maximum of 4-5 participants, including the panel convener or discussant.
On submission of the proposal, the proposing convenor will receive an automated email confirming receipt.
The list of accepted panels will be posted to the website in mid-September 2014.
ECAS requires all accepted panels to be open to paper proposals through the website: panels should not be organised as ‘closed’ sessions.
Delegates may only give one paper. They may, however, also convene one plenary session, panel, or roundtable, or be a discussant in one plenary session, panel, or roundtable.
