When: Nov. 20-23 2014
The African Studies Association will hold its 57th annual meeting on Nov. 20 to 23 at the J.W. Marriott Hotel in Indianapolis. This is the first time the conference, which brings together more than 2,000 leading scholars of Africa, will be held in Indianapolis.
The theme for this year’s conference is "Rethinking Violence, Reconstruction and Reconciliation." The conference will provide an important platform for a critical assessment of the locations of violence in Africa's past, present and future and the various responses that have emerged through the years to various types of violence and the development of new strategies that can be used in the reconstruction process.
Numerous panels, roundtables and forums will take place to examine the conference theme from various perspectives.
