SESCAS 2022: Detailed program now online

Student speaking in lecture hall

The Second European Students' Conference on African Studies takes place from 31 August to 2 September 2022 in Basel. The detailed program is now available on the conference website. Online registration is open.

The Second European Conference on African Studies (SESCAS) is a project developed through joint efforts by students from the African Studies Master Programs at the University of Basel and at the University of Geneva. It builds upon the initial 2007 experience, which attracted almost 100 participants coming from diverse European universities. SESCAS22 aims to encourage connection and development of students within various Masters programs throughout Europe which work directly or theoretically with developments, trends, and understandings of Africa. As a student-led project, it aims at encouraging critical discussions and create networks for student academics interested in Africa throughout Switzerland and Europe.
