Call: sixth Namibia Research Day in Basel (27.09.2019)

Basler Afrika Bibliographien

The Basler Afrika Bibliographien (BAB) and the Centre for African Studies would like to invite students and scholars working on Namibia to participate in the 6th Namibia Research Day taking place on Friday 27 September 2019 in Basel (Switzerland).

The Namibia Research Day brings together graduate students and scholars of all levels and from all disciplines to share their research, experiences and expectations. It offers the possibility to discuss ongoing or recently completed research on Namibia in an interdisciplinary context. The Day also offers the possibility for common reflections on a variety of (practical) issues with which researchers in Namibia are faced with, such as archival and institutional opportunities and challenges or questions regarding academic cooperation.
The Namibia Research Day explicitly addresses all disciplines, themes and topics. Interested participants are requested to send a research abstract/project summary (not more than one page) and let us know if interested in giving a brief presentation. The final format and programme of the Day will be communicated at a later stage, depending on the number of participants and the disciplines represented.

The Namibia Research Day is jointly organised by the Basler Afrika Bibliographien (Namibia Research Centre & Southern Africa Library) and the Centre for African Studies at University of Basel, Switzerland. Participation is free of charge.
