                                      CALL FOR PAPERS
Since 1978, the annual African Studies Association of Australasia and the Pacific (AFSAAP) conference
has brought together Africa-focused scholars, students, government and diplomatic staff, business,
industry, and individuals. The goal of these meetings has been to critically address the social, cultural,
health, political, legal, economic and environmental issues facing Africa. At the same time, the AFSSAP
also wishes to encourage discussion of the issues and challenges African migrants encounter in
Australia and elsewhere.

The African Studies Association of Australasia and the University of Queensland are now inviting papers
for the forthcoming 32nd African Studies Conference – “Africa in a restructuring world”.

The 32nd AFSAAP conference will be held from September 30 to October 2 2009 at the University of
Queensland’s St. Lucia campus. The conference web site is located at http://www.afsaap.org.au/

Given the cross-institutional and in this case, cross-continental nature of the AFSAAP Conference, we
will welcome papers on any topic relating to Africa, but suggest the following as focus areas:
     • HIV/AIDS in Africa
     • Peace and conflict studies in Africa
     • African migrants and refugees
     • Africans in Australia
     • Aspects of African society and culture
     • African literature, music and drama
     • Business and Economics in Africa
     • Africa and China
     • Africa, climate change and sustainable development
     • Education
     • Donors and recipients: issues in development and humanitarian aid
     • Health issues in Africa
