Carol Gluck, George Sansom Professor of History, spoke at the second installment of Africa-Asia: A New Axis of Knowledge, held in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania on September 20-23. The conference, which had 400 participants from Africa, Asia, Europe, North and South America, sought to deepen explorations of new realities, and long histories connecting Africa and Asia. The conference also aimed to solidify an infrastructure of engagement bringing together scholars, artists, intellectuals and educators based in Africa and Asia as well as across the world to think both comparatively and holistically about the challenges and possibilities of cross-continental and trans-regional encounters. Gluck moderated and spoke at the roundtable “Towards a Francophone Institute for African and Asian Studies – Which Libraries and Curricula for Building a Research and Training Group Network,” which also featured an introductory note by Abdourahmane Seck, Université Gaston Berger Saint-Louis, Senegal.
