APCG Online Colloquium

The 2018 APCG Online Colloquium

The APCG Online Colloquium provides scholars of African politics an opportunity to share their work and receive timely, constructive feedback. Each colloquium session is devoted to the discussion of one working paper that a scholar seeks to publish in a peer-reviewed journal.

The Colloquium is open to all scholars of African politics. Priority for scheduling will be given to advanced PhD students, scholars based at African institutions, and junior faculty. There are no thematic or methodological requirements for papers.

Expression of Interest
(How to Apply)

Participants should complete the expression of interest form found HERE. The form asks for relevant details for scheduling sessions, including suggested discussants and a PDF copy of the paper. Discussants with relevant expertise will be recruited by the Colloquium’s advisory committee, and they may differ from those suggested by the author.

Accepted papers will be announced through the APCG listserv and posted online at the APCG website so that others can read them in advance to participate in the online discussion.

Colloquium sessions will be hosted using Bluejeans for 60 minutes. Sessions will be recorded so that they can be posted on the APCG website for others interested in learning about specific topics in the study of African politics.

Questions can be directed to members of the advisory committee: Nahomi Ichino, chair, Andy Harris, and Natalie Letsa.
