fourth annual conference. Following last year’s overwhelming response, this

colonial and post-colonial African history, which reflect on the problem of
conceptualising and writing about aspects of change in Africa. Papers might
intersect with one or more of the following themes:

• Borders, Boundaries and Partitions
• Belonging, Exile and Identity
• Colonial and Postcolonial States
