Call for Papers – VAD 2022, Deadline 31st January 2022
Africa-Europe: Reciprocal Perspectives
Albert Ludwig University Freiburg im Breisgau, 7–10 June 2022

The VAD conference 2022 in Freiburg will focus on the theme “Africa and Europe: Reciprocal Perspectives” and will address 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. This should unlock new forms of collaboration and further develop 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”. The conference is hosted by the newly founded Africa Centre for Transregional Research (ACT) of the Albert Ludwig University of Freiburg.

The Call for Papers is now open for the upcoming VAD2022 (Association for African Studies in Germany - Vereinigung für Afrikawissenschaften in Deutschland) conference Africa-Europe: reciprocal perspectives.
