Long Abstract:

While in Western and Southern Europe there is a long tradition of African Studies this is much less the case in Central and Eastern Europe. Increasingly, however, several universities are engaged in research on Africa. As with any multi-disciplinary field, it is characterized by divergences and contradictions and as a discipline it is permanently challenged in terms of its relevance. In this panel we aim to explore current predicaments in Eastern and Central European African Studies and find avenues through which the field could be fostered.
