Conference61st annual meeting of the African Studies Association
Country/TerritoryUnited States
OtherThe theme of this year’s Annual Meeting is “Energies: Power, Creativity and Afro-Futures.” The theme statement reads as follows: For the annual meeting of the ASA in Atlanta (2018), we reflect on ‘energy’—its production, extraction, distribution and exchange—as a heuristic to understand Africa’s past and to imagine its futures. Energy has rich literal and metaphorical resonances in reference to extractive and entrepreneurial economic activities; the production of knowledge; human mobility and labor; performance, ritual and spirituality; and crime and social unrest. We call on scholars to explore the theme of energy, in both material and symbolic terms, and to reconceptualize dynamic fields of action in the economy, politics, culture, arts, and environment—across time and space, within the African continent and across its diasporas.
