About African Studies Association of the UK (ASAUK)

African Studies Association of the UK, ASAUK African Studies Association of the UK (ASAUK) A major aim of theAfrican Studies Association of the UK (ASAUK) is to facilitate linkages between UK and African institutions, and between scholars in Africa and the UK. We support African scholars publishing in Africanist journals published in the UK, scholarly journal publishing in Africa, scholarly book publishing in Africa, and the exchange of ideas in and about Africa. Our two major programmes, the ASAUK teaching fellowships (see the 2014 call for applications here) and the ASAUK writing workshops are designed to support and strengthen the connections between academics in the UK and their colleagues in Africa. Our aim is also to disseminate information and news to our members about scholarly research in Africa, and to facilitate scholarly initiatives. We encourage early career scholars with an interest in African Studies to undertake the highest quality research and to remain involved in the field. Postgraduate research students registered in the UK are encouraged to join the ASAUK. Africadesk: Jointly managed by the ASAUK and British Academy Africa Panel, the africadesk hosts a directory of Africanists, a directory of African scholars as well as smaller directories of Africanist libraries, centres and journals. The africadesk is a hub, providing information about the expertise and interests of our members.
