Call for papers

The European Conference on African Studies (ECAS) 2007 will be held from 11-14 July 2007 in Leiden, the Netherlands. The theme of the conference is "African Alternatives: Initiative and Creativity beyond Current Constraints".

Paper proposals that do not fit into one of the approved panels will not be considered. The deadline for the submission of abstracts has now expired. The proposals will be reviewed in February 2007 and those who have submitted abstracts will be notified as to whether their paper has been accepted or not at the end of February 2007.

For questions concerning a proposed paper, you can contact the panel convenor directly.
Each panel session will last one and a half hours and can accommodate 3-5 papers. If a panel attracts more than five interesting and relevant paper proposals, the panel convenor may consider organizing additional sessions.
