Dear ASWAD members and colleagues,


Our seventh biennial conference in Santo Domingo is rapidly taking shape, with over 300 proposals received. We are anticipating a stimulating program and many opportunities to share perspectives on the conference theme, "Transformative Visions:

Confronting Change and Creating Opportunity in Africa and the African Diaspora."


Please be reminded that 2011 memberships have now expired, so if you have not yet joined or renewed your ASWAD membership in 2013, it is necessary to renew now in order to attend the conference at the discounted members' rate. There is an additional discount available for early registration before June 30.


To renew or to join as a new member, please visit:


We look forward to seeing you in Santo Domingo!


Kim D. Butler
