The Canadian Association of African Studies (CAAS) extends a special invitation to all scholars and professionals working on all aspects of African Studies for its next annual conference to be hosted by the Africa Institute, Western University on June 6-9th, 2021 at the Ivey Business School.
Welcome to the newsletter of the Canadian Association of
African Studies, and our first series submission from our

CAAS members generally enjoy the benefits of belonging to a diverse, multidisciplinary, and bilingual community of scholars and practitioners who foster an international exchange of knowledge and scholarly research on and in Africa.
Launched in 1967, CJAS represents a key vehicle by which CAAS promotes the study of Africa in Canada and provides the necessary scholarly infrastructure to support Canadian Africanist scholars working in and across all disciplines.
CAAS expresses its anger, frustration, and sorrow at the deaths of George Floyd.
The Canadian Association of African Studies is pleased to announce that Mark Hunter's book Race for Education: Gender, White Tone, and Schooling in South Africa has won this year’s Joel Gregory Prize.
Philippe M. Frowd's book Security at the Borders: Transnational Practices and Technologies in West Africa is the runner up for this year’s Joel Gregory Prize.
The Canadian Association of African Studies (CAAS) is a community of scholars and other researchers whose objectives are to promote the study of Africa in Canada, to make Canadians more aware of the problems and aspirations of Africans, to inform Canadian policy on and in Africa, and to facilitate exchanges and linkages between Canadian and African universities and research institutions.
CAAS invites you to join our interactive community by consulting our website regularly and by
becoming a member of our dynamic Africanist network.
