AEGIS Summer School 2024 – Cagliari


African, Afropolitan and Afropean Belongings

The 2024 AEGIS Summer School will take place in Cagliari (Italy) from 11 to 14 of June, and it will address the theme of African, Afropolitan and Afropean Belongings. The aim of the Summer School is to discuss this year theme, bringing together advanced Ph.D. students and teaching staff from AEGIS Centres in order to exchange field and research experience; to improve the students’ ability to prepare and present their research in an international context and more specifically to serve as a ‘feeder’ for ECAS 10 in Prague; and to promote graduate training within AEGIS and stimulate African-European inter-university cooperation. The 2024 AEGIS Summer School is organized by Affrica-Centro di Studi Africani in Sardegna in collaboration with the AEGIS Centres of Roskilde (Denmark), Edinburgh (UK), Lisbon (Portugal), London (UK), CESSMA (France), Leiden (Netherlands). The Call for Papers was published in September 2023. The Scientific Committee selected a total of 14 participants considering the quality of the application and correspondence with the theme, from 12 different universities (Pavia, Colonia, Edinburgh, Bonn, Max Planck/Halle, Ghent, Bayreuth, Lisbon, La Sapienza/Roma, Accra, Harvard, and Florida).
