ASWAD Draft Program and Event Sign up Available!

Dear colleagues:

We are excited to share with you the draft program for the 2017 biennial conference, "African/Diasporic Futures: Re-Envisioning Power, Interventions, Imaginations and Belonging." As we prepare the final program, please carefully review the details for your panel and presentation by logging into .

While there will be no changes to the program schedule, we will make changes/corrections to panel and paper titles, the order of panel presentations, and the names and titles of individual papers and presenters. Please note as per letters of acceptance, prospective presenters who did not confirm their participation by paying conference registration by June 30th were removed from the program. Also, in circumstances where more than one presenter from an accepted panel withdrew, the Program Committee shifted remaining papers to other sessions.

Please send your requests for edits to no later than September 20, 2017.

You can find sign-up forms for tours, excursions, and Mentoring Workshops on the ASWAD membership site:

Please note this site is the same site where you paid your membership dues and is different from where you will view the draft program. There is a dedicated link for Conference Events/Workshops.

Registration for tours and workshops must be completed no later than October 13, 2017.

On behalf of the 2017 conference program committee and the ASWAD Executive Board, thank you for supporting ASWAD and its upcoming conference. We look forward to greeting you in Seville.
