59th African Studies Association Annual Meeting

Washington, DC, USA

December 01 - 03, 2016

The annual meeting of the African Studies Association took place on December 01 - 03, 2016 in Washington, DC. The objective of this meeting was to examine how Western politicians eschew international scholarship while periodically engaging in ‘bull in the china shop’ interventions in the African context. This conference highlighted the need to interweave academy, policy, and practice for future African Studies research. Members of the SHADD project took part in a  panel discussion on “Biographies of Enslavement” that took place on December 2nd, 2016. Paul Lovejoy served as chair of this panel discussion.
