Welcome to ASWAD

ASWAD is a not-for-profit organization of international scholars seeking to further their understanding of Africa and the African Diaspora. We do this through conferences and symposia, as well as through publications. We also look for ways to share our work with students and the general community. All who share these interests are welcome to join ASWAD. By joining you will be informed for all the Associations activities and initiatives, and be eligible to participate in ASWAD conferences and governance.
