AFSAAP holds an annual conference, see

Here is recent correspondence about the 2020 event from the organiser;

“Dear All,

It is planned to hold the African Studies Conference (AFSAAP) in the first week of December 2020 at UNE in Armidale or Parramatta.

We would like to choose Armidale, but we need the moral support of local African academics or academics with an interest in Africa plus the local African community.

The idea is to have a conference with a post-graduate student day and 2 days for academics plus some public events. Those of a more scientific bent would be encouraged to talk about the sociology of their topic relationships amongst cattle breeders in Africa rather than cattle breeding per se.

Please contact me with any queries.

Best Wishes

Helen Ware”
