Call for Papers: African Languages in the Disciplines Conference at Harvard University

The Harvard African Language Program is seeking abstracts for the fourth annual African Languages in the Disciplines (ALD) conference to be held at Harvard University on April 25, 2013. This conference will build on the important conversations of the previous three years as well as celebrate the ten-year anniversary of the African Language Program at Harvard.

This conference brings together scholars from a variety of disciplines as well as African heritage communities to discuss the vital role that African languages play in the study of Africa and the diaspora. Possible themes include, but are not limited to, the contribution of African languages to the study of literature, music, film, performance, visual arts, media studies, history, philosophy, religion, anthropology, sociology, gender studies, political science, psychology, economics, education, geography, environmental science, legal studies, and public health. Past conferences have also engaged in larger conversations about issues of translation, regional languages, new orthographies, and indigenous literary and historical genres, among others.

Please apply via e-mail to by February 28, 2013. We ask for a 250-word abstract outlining a 15-minute presentation as well as a brief biography. Please contact the conference organizers at the same e-mail address with any questions.
