International Conference 20–22 September, 2018

International Conference 
‘A New Axis of Knowledge’ Second Edition 
20–22 September, 2018
The Department of Sociology and Anthropology, College of Social Sciences (CoSS), University of Dar
es Salaam (UDSM) in collaboration with the International Institute for Asian Studies (IIAS), Leiden,
the Netherlands Association for Asian Studies in Africa (A-Asia, Accra, Ghana) and the International Convention of Asia Scholars (ICAS, Leiden, the Netherlands) and other partners, is organising an
international conference entitled Africa-Asia ‘A New Axis of Knowledge’ Second Edition to be held
at the University of Dar es Salaam from 20 to 22 September 2018. Building on the multiple
encounters, interactions and dialogues initiated at the 1st Africa-Asia Conference (Accra, Ghana,
2015), the conference seeks to deepen explorations of new realities, and long histories connecting
Africa and Asia. The conference aims to solidify an infrastructure of engagement by bringing
together scholars, artists, intellectuals and educators based in Africa and Asia as well as across the
world to think both comparatively and holistically about challenges and possibilities of cross-
continental and trans-regional encounters. Emphasizing on an inclusive approach, the conference,
modelled after ICAS international conventions, will be organized around a series of broad thematic
multi-disciplinary and multi-sectorial groupings that highlight multiple flows and mobilities linking
the two continents such as transcontinental connections and interactions; economics and
development, intellectual; encounters, arts and culture; migration and diasporas; Asian studies in
Africa and African studies in Asia. Specifically, the central unifying theme for the conference is a call
to understand the histories and future of Africa-Asia as simultaneously unfolding, in order to rethink
the methodologies and knowledge practices through which we understand Africa in Asia and Asia in
Africa, and beyond as ‘fields of studies’.
