15th Annual Meeting of the African Economic History Network (AEHN)

15th Annual Meeting of the African Economic History Network (AEHN) Universidad de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (ULPGC), October 13-14, 2022



The African Economic History Network (AEHN), in association with the Research Institute of Text Analysis and Applications (IATEXT) and the Faculty of Geography and History at ULPGC, announce a Call for Papers for the 15th Annual Meeting of the African Economic History Network (

The conference theme is “Crossroads in African Economic History”. The Canary Islands being at a geographic crossroads between Africa, Europe and America has a long tradition for intercontinental exchange. In the frame of this conference, we hope it will become a place for encounters and exchanges of ideas, approaches (including international comparative approaches), methods and sources.

The conference will be held on 13-14 October 2022 in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain. The plan is to organize the meeting on campus at ULPGC. Due to Covid-19 and the uncertain times we currently live in, we may have to decide to hold the meeting in a hybrid mode (online and in person). A final decision regarding the format will be made and communicated as soon as possible.

Papers on all aspects of African economic history are welcome, but preference will be given to those that pertain to the conference theme. Although the conference working language will be English, papers in French will also be accepted for some specific sessions. Abstracts no longer than 500 words should be submitted to no later than 30 March 2022. Some bursaries will be available for graduate students and faculty from Africa. If applicable, please indicate the need for a bursary in your submission.

For further inquiries please contact (co-Organizer)

The registration form will be available from 15 July to 15 September 2022 and must be filled out by all those presenting a paper at the conference.
