Relations

Integrating African, Chinese and Global Perspectives
How can African societies benefit from intensified economic and political
ties with China? How can China benefit from socially and politically
sustainable investments into African economies? To mobilize novel ideas,
arguments and solutions to key issues in Africa-China relations, Yale
University is partnering with leading business schools in Africa and China
to host a series of high-profile, interdisciplinary conferences on
Africa-China relations.

Chaired by Prof. Ibrahim Gambari (Former Minister of External Affairs of
Nigeria and UN Under-Secretary General) and Prof. Li Anshan (Director of
the African Studies Program at Peking University), the inaugural
conference will be held at Lagos Business School on March 15-18, 2016. The
conference will bring together established and aspiring thought leaders on
Africa-China relations, offering first-hand insights and unparalleled
opportunities for networking and exchange.
For questions and further information related to the call for proposals,

POSTAMBLE - transdisciplinary postgraduate journal of African Studies:
would like to announce its Call for Papers for: Volume 10.1: The
Decolonial Issue.
VOLUME 10.1: CALL FOR PAPERS: THE DECOLONIAL ISSUE
SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 30 January 2016
Inspired by the recent uprisings of a new generation of South African
students, POSTAMBLE in its upcoming issue seeks to address one of the most
urgent theoretical questions of our time: decolonisation, and what it
means for post-post-apartheid South Africa.
By inviting critical and creative engagement with different modes of
decolonisation/decoloniality, we want to offer a space for the exploration
of practical and utopian alternatives to the suffocating coloniality of
the present.
All formats are invited: personal essays, academic essays, visual essays,
hypertexts, fragments, poems, podcasts, films, visual art, vernacular
responses, etc.
Send submissions to postamble@gmail.com (Link:

Please see the website (Link: http://postamble.org/) for

Conference Announcement – Call for Papers: African-Asian Encounters (III)
- Afrasian Transformations: Beyond Grand Narratives?
Goethe University Frankfurt, September 28-30, 2016
Submission: 15 March 2016
This interdisciplinary conference is part of a series of international
conferences on African-Asian Encounters that started with “New
Cooperations – New Dependencies?” (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, March 2014)
and continued with “Re-Thinking African-Asian Relationships: Changing
Realities – New Concepts” (Cape Town, South Africa, March 2015). The
Frankfurt Conference invites scholars to take stock of various grand
narratives in their respective research work, to critically reconsider
current theoretical and methodological frameworks employed in
understanding African-Asian interactions, and to discuss how they navigate
between empirical work and theory production.
We invite contributions that theorize African-Asian interactions and
address grand narratives prevalent in/across various disciplines. We also
welcome contributions that reflect on African-Asian interactions in
various fields and connect their empirical findings to the overall
conference theme.
