About VIVA AFRICA

logo viva africa

Strong efforts have been made since 2006 to establish a new tradition of African Studies in the Czech Republic by organizing an annual conference focused on various disciplines concerning Africa. Since we can see an extensive academic interest in African Studies research in our country, the decision has been made to provide a wider platform for presenting results of primary research. Nowadays, VIVA AFRICA conference is jointly co-organised by the Czech Association for African Studies, University of Hradec Králové, the Metropolitan University Prague and Cultura Africa association. 

Active participants (paper givers) are anthropologists, historians, linguists, political scientists, sociologists and other researchers. The conference is open for professors, academic scholars, PhD. students, and other specialists who have Africa as their field of study, and who want to present results of their primary research. Especially M.A. students of African studies are welcome as observers. 

The conference takes place in the form of plenary sessions. The scientific programme begins with the keynote address by an acknowledged scholar and clusters of paper presentations follow. Each paper is allocated approx. 20 minutes. The scholarly programme of the first day is usually followed by a toast of welcome, launch of new books and the reception.
