Welcome to The Africa Desk

The Africa Desk is a collaboration between the British Academy and the African Studies Association of the UK, with support from The Association of Commonwealth Universities and SCOLMA, the UK Africanists librarians group. At its heart are directories of African and UK scholars - it encompasses the latest edition of the ASAUK Directory of Africanists in Britain - in addition to information on African studies centres in the UK and specialist Africanist libraries in the UK and elsewhere in Europe. The Africa Desk will provide a central hub of information on Africanist research carried out in the UK. The Africa Desk will help to publicise the activities of the UK Africanist community and strengthen the profile of Africanist activity in the UK
