Dakar 2016 Preliminary Program Now Available Online!

The African Studies Association, in partnership with the American Anthropological Association is excited to present the inaugural joint conference entitled, "Innovation, Transformation and Sustainable Futures in Africa."  This event, which will take place at the Novotel Dakar from June 1-4, 2016 will provide an interdisciplinary occasion to focus research attention on important transformations as they relate to Africa’s future. Hosted in Dakar by the Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA) and the West African Research Center (WARC), the conference will itself model innovation and creativity in its presentation formats and its location. Dakar, now a city of more than two million people, exemplifies these dynamic changes— developing into a modern, global city while maintaining its rich cultural roots and identity.

The preliminary program is now available on the conference website at www.dakar2016.org.
