Africa and the Global Atlantic World Conference

IAAA is instrumental in holding a biennial conference titled: Africa and the Global Atlantic World Conference. This conference is especially significant because it provides faculty and students with the opportunity to showcase their research to a wider audience. Since its inception in 2012, we have hosted three conferences themed: Cultures, Identities, and Racial Violence in the Pan-African World, 2016; Revisiting Black History, Identities and Popular Culture, 2014; Slavery Colonialism and African Identities in the Atlantic World 2012. In total over 500 people throughout the world have visited the Department of Pan-African to participate in the Africa and the Global Atlantic World Conference.
