CFP: African Borderlands Research Network, fourth annual meeting at the University of Basel, Switzerland, 8-11 September 2010

Friday, February 19th, 2010

ABORNE will hold its fourth annual meeting at the University of Basel, Switzerland, from 8-11 September 2010. Basel is an attractive town in the centre of Europe, very close to the international borders to Germany and France. The conference has room for about fifty speakers in both plenary and parallel panels (see below). Papers are invited from scholars of African borderlands and borders at all levels. Financial support is available for a limited number of
participants. Due to the restrictions of a funding scheme financed by European tax payers, only speakers based in countries financing the networking programme will be eligible for funding (Austria, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Switzerland, UK). Additional funding for an equal number of scholars based in Africa will in all likelihood be available.
