Trading places. The role of trade with Africa

Call for papers

Please find attached the call for papers of the 9th annual symposium of the Africa Platform of Ghent University Association, entitled "Trading places. The role of trade with Africa".

Contributions to this symposium can explore the effects of trade on African societies both in relation to the African context and to the European one, and take a historical perspective or focus on contemporary practices and issues. Thus, GAPSYM9 seeks to critically investigate and scrutinize the complex interactions (both human and material) that are brought about by trade with Africa, in order to better understand and judge the opportunities and the challenges it offers for the future.

Paper proposals (abstract of maximum 500 words) can be submitted until the 1st of August 2015.
