CFP - IOWC Graduate Interdisciplinary Conference on Africa

Call for Papers

Submission Deadline: 15 March 2013

The Indian Ocean World Centre (IOWC) at McGill University is proud to
invite you to participate in the Sixth Annual IOWC Graduate
Interdisciplinary Conference on Africa, to be held at McGill University on
April 25, 2013.

The conference is open to graduate students in the social sciences,
humanities, natural sciences or any related fields dealing with any
historical period on Africa, or the African off-shore islands (Madagascar,
Zanzibar, etc.). In order to ensure the relevance of the conference,
however, papers in the natural sciences should address the human impact on
or by the study subject.

Paper proposals should include:

* Full name and contact address of the student

* Area of study

* Name of supervisor(s)

* Title and brief summary (maximum 300 words) of the paper, detailing the
subject, period and region the applicant wishes to discuss, as well as the
approach he or she would like to take towards the subject.

Papers using an interdisciplinary approach are particularly welcome.

The deadline for submission is 15 March 2013.

The papers presented at the conference need not necessarily represent
completed works.

Participants can choose to present part of their research work, a work in
progress or a particular aspect of it. Since the conference is designed as
an ideal interdisciplinary platform, graduate students can use it as a
sounding board to discuss their topic with their peers.

There will be a $15 registration fee for this conference.

To submit a proposal, or for further information, please write to Erin
