VAD 2020

Africa challenges is a conference of the African Studies Association in Germany (VAD e.V.) organized by  the Centre for Interdisciplinary African Studies (ZIAF) at Goethe-University.

Due to the current corona pandemic, the conference of the African Studies Association in Germany (VAD) planned for September 2020 in Frankfurt unfortunately has to be postponed. In accordance with the relevant professional associations we decided to co-host it together with the European Conference on African Studies (ECAS) in Cologne from June 2-5, 2021 (https://www.ecasconference.org/2021/). Both conferences will be organized separately. The participation fee will be the same for both conferences and registered participants can attend all activities of both conferences. The organizing teams are looking forward to the resulting synergies and an inspiring professional exchange. Further information will follow soon.
