APAD Conference

Colloque international de l’APAD

*  *  *

Published on Tuesday, February 04, 2020 by Anastasia Giardinelli

Summary

After the Roskilde conference in 2018, devoted to mobility and migration, the Association for the Anthropology of Social Change and Development (APAD) proposes for its 2020 edition, co-organized with the Department of Anthropology and African Studies of the Faculty of Human and Social Sciences (FSHS) of the University of Lomé (Togo), to focus on the multiple forms of large-scale circulation of goods, ideas, techniques, information and models that increasingly cross the global South and link it to the rest of the world. Panels or papers focusing on smaller-scale, regional or neighbouring countries' circulations, or showing the consequences of scale change in circulations, are also welcome.

Argument

After the Roskilde conference in 2018, devoted to mobility and migration, the Association for the Anthropology of Social Change and Development (APAD) proposes for its 2020 edition, co-organized with the Department of Anthropology and African Studies of the Faculty of Human and Social Sciences (FSHS) of the University of Lomé (Togo), to focus on the multiple forms of large-scale circulation of goods, ideas, techniques, information and models that increasingly cross the global South and link it to the rest of the world. Panels or papers focusing on smaller-scale, regional or neighbouring countries' circulations, or showing the consequences of scale change in circulations, are also welcome.

See the full text of the conference’s topic: https://apad-association.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/apad-association.org-cfp-apad-2020-eng-new-deadline.pdf

After the first phase, in which 21 thematic panels were set up, we are now launching the call for papers.

There are two ways to participate in the conference:

  • Preferably, submit a paper proposal to one of the panels (see list of panels attached).
  • Submit a paper proposal "out of the panels" but related to the conference’s main axes of reflection (see list of axes of reflection attached).

We also invite visual anthropologists and filmmakers to submit films for public screenings.

Calendar

A web page dedicated to the conference is on the APAD website: https://apad-association.org/conference/conference-2020/?lang=en  

Full text of the panels and the abstract submission form will be posted online by January 23rd at the latest.

The paper proposals, of a maximum of 600 words, must be registered online at the conference web page: https://apad-association.org/conference/conference-2020/?lang=en no later than 20 February 2020.

Proposers will be informed of the results of the selection on 5 March 2020.

The full text of the papers is expected by 15 May 2020, for inclusion on the conference website.

Practical information

The working languages are French and English.

The conference will take place at the University of Lomé from 23 to 26 June 2020. Lomé is an air hub, facilitating the arrival of participants. A list of hotels, where special conference rates have been negotiated, will be posted in advance for reservations.

The registration fee includes documentation, coffee breaks, lunch in the University cafeteria, cocktail and APAD membership for the year 2020 (including the APAD newsletter and the issues of Anthropology & development, APAD journal).

  • The standard fee is €120 (FCFA 78 0000) = €70 (FCFA 45 000) for conference registration fee + €50 (FCFA 33 000) for APAD membership.

Two reduced rates are possible:

  • €95 (FCFA 62 000) = €70 for conference registration + €25 for people with an average income of less than 1000 euros/month.
  • €70 (FCFA 45 000) = for APAD members who have paid their 2020 membership fees.

Some grants will be available for young researchers or doctoral candidates who struggle to finance their participation. Applications will be successful if applicants’ papers have been accepted on to a panel, and the provision, in advance, of the text of the paper. The application procedures will be specified shortly.

After the conference, APAD will organize a writing workshop for young African researchers, based on a selection of the papers received.
