The African Studies Association (ASA) was founded in 1957 as a nonprofit organization open to all individuals and institutions interested in African affairs, and is a member of the American Council of Learned Societies. The ASA’s mission is to bring together people with a scholarly and professional interest in Africa.
IPS’ Foreign Policy In Focus is proudly sponsoring several sessions in this year’s 54th Annual Meeting of the ASA, as we look at “50 Years of African Liberation.”
The ASA Annual Meeting is the largest gathering of Africanist scholars in the world. With an average attendance of 1,400 scholars and professionals, the conference offers more than 200 panels and roundtables, scholarly and professional plenary and institutional events, awards and prizes, as well as discussion groups, an international exhibit hall, and an on-demand film to appreciate the teaching, research, and professional results of Africanist scholars and that of their colleagues.
