Centre of African Studies: Events



The Centre of African Studies organises and supports a great many events.

We run a weekly seminar series during the semester, inviting Africanist researchers from the UK and beyond to share their work with our staff and students. We organise periodic PhD researchers seminars and workshops. We host conferences and workshops under the banner of the European networks of African studies, we have hosted both an AEGIS conference and workshop in recent years.

Finally, we host an annual thematic African Studies conference that has been running for over 30 years. This conference attracts Africanists from across the world and a particular feature of the conference is the fact we sponsor all Africa-based participants to attend. 

More information on these events can be found by navigating through the links to the left.
