Institute of African Studies Emerging Scholar Conference

Date: May 17, 2024
Venue: Dunton Tower, Room 2017, Carleton University

The Institute of African Studies, Carleton University is proud to announce the inaugural Emerging Scholar Conference in Canada, marking the first-ever gathering of its kind. This annual event aims to foster and develop an engaged intellectual community among undergraduate students, graduate students, emerging scholars, and community scholars in the fields of African Studies, African Diasporic and Migration Studies, or Black Studies.

Participants from Canada, the African diaspora, and Africa are warmly welcomed and encouraged to join. The conference also seeks to highlight and engage the broader Ottawa community and showcase the exceptional work of students affiliated with the Institute. Notably, we will pay tribute to the late Director, Professor Pius Adesanmi, by featuring an annual memorial keynote in his honour.

We welcome the participation of Masters and Doctorate students and candidates, early-career scholars (e.g. Postdoctoral fellows), and community members!
