Following the pandemic of COVID-19 and as a result of the decisions of the Dean of the University of Lisbon and the Director of the School of Arts and Humanities (FLUL) that imposed the cancellation of all academic activities and scientific events, it becomes necessary to postpone the 11th Iberian Conference on African Studies. Considering the calendar of teaching activities and the availability of enough for a big Conference such as the CIEA11, the Organizing Committee decided to reschedule the CIEA11 for 21-23 January 2021.

It will be held by the Center for History of the University of Lisbon (CH-ULisboa).
The first CIEA edition took place in 1991 and throughout its ten editions it has become one of the most important scientific meetings on African Studies in Europe. Taking place regularly in Spain (10th edition was in Granada, 2018) and in Portugal, each edition brings together hundreds of participants. The last one was held by AFRICAInEs: Investigación y Estudios Aplicados al Desarollo, Universidade de Granada, and took place in January 2018.
The 11th CIEA is entitled African Transits in the Global World: History and Memories, Heritage and Innovation.
