VAD conference 2022: Africa and Europe - Reciprocal Perspectives

The Africa Centre for Transregional Research (ACT) is hosting the next conference of the Association for African Studies in Germany e.V. (VAD) from 7th to 10th June in Freiburg im Breisgau

The conference will focus on the theme “Africa and Europe: Reciprocal Perspectives” and will address the processes of co-production of knowledge as well as the mutual questioning of different ways of thinking. Political and epistemological entanglements will be explored and unusual perspectives will also be opened up, unlocking new forms of collaboration, while developing existing ones. Experiences with collaborative research and its challenges should lead to analyses which also take into account questions of persistent exclusion and the lack of representativeness in teaching and research in both Africa-related studies and “European Studies”.
