The second Africa Research Day will be hosted by the Africa Research Students Network (AfNet) on Monday, March 17, 2014 at University College London. We welcome presentations from PhD students conducting research on Africa or Africa-related themes. Presentations and discussions will be organised into the following thematic panels:

The Research Day is an excellent opportunity for current PhD students to share their research with peers working on similar topics or in similar fields. It will allow participants to share ideas, get feedback on work in progress, and make connections. Presenters will each make a 15-minute presentation followed by 15 minutes of questions and discussion.

Please submit abstracts of up to 300 words, including the title of your presentation and indicating the thematic panel you would like to be considered for. Please also include your full name, institution and email address.
