About ASAA2022

ASAA2022 – "Africa and the Human: Old questions, new imaginaries" is the 4th Biennial Conference of the African Studies Association of Africa (ASAA), co-hosted by HUMA - Institute for Humanities in Africa at the University of Cape Town. Scholars, activists, artists and policymakers across different generations and disciplines are attending.

We envision ASAA2022 as a carnival of ideas, a laboratory of concepts and a space for ideological experimentation about Africa and the human. We aim to create an interdisciplinary space of conversations between the disciplines – social sciences and humanities (SSH) and science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) – focusing on the production of new knowledges about Africa and the human. 

Conference days: 13–16 April 2022
