6th Biennial CRG African History Conference

Call for roundtables
The 6th Biennial CRG African History Conference, hosted and organised by the Centre for African Studies Basel (ZASB) and the Basler Afrika Bibliographien (BAB) will take place on June 13-15, 2024.

Conference format

Our conference format centres on thematic roundtables with three to five speakers, lasting one and a half hours each. Roundtables should invite discussion of the topic at hand with the wider conference audience through a series of brief essayist inputs of larger ideas (not full papers !) by the roundtable participants, leaving ample time for general discussion. The conference includes one key lecture : "The Exciting Lecture on African History". Please note that the conference organisation will not be able to finance travel or accommodation for any of the participants except the "Exciting Lecturer".

Call for roundtables

We call upon all CRG members to propose roundtables. Proposals should include a 300-word presentation of the topic, and the names of three to five confirmed participants. A scientific committee will select between 4 and 6 roundtables. Please send your proposal before 31 January 2024 to :
