8th Annual SEALLF Conference
Friday, September 29, 2017 - Saturday, September 30, 2017, All day.
FedEx Global Education Center, Room 4003, UNC-CH

The South East African Languages and Literatures Forum (SEALLF) is an annual conference organized by a group of scholars working on African language pedagogy, linguistics, and literature. This year's theme is: African Languages and Literatures in the Era of Globalization. Africa has been undergoing rapid social processes over the years. These changes have propelled Africa from the pre-colonial era, through the colonial era to the postcolonial era. The postcolonial era has ushered Africa into the era of globalization. The era of globalization unlike the pre-colonial and colonial eras has had a great implication on African languages and literatures. The question, which we ask is: What opportunities and challenges does the era of globalization present to African languages and literatures? Each prospective presenter should submit electronically an abstract of 250 words (please contact the organizers for detailed information on thematic content) to the organizing committee: at lisanza@email.unc.edu by Monday May 26, 2017. Abstracts should include the presenterís name, title of paper, institutional affiliation, and contact information.   Contact organizer for cost information.   Please Contact: Esther Lisanza lisanza@email.unc.edu for more information.
