The SOAS GLOCAL is a fully Non-Profit unit at SOAS, University of London, assisting scholars in impeded economic positions, who require funding to access the Conference, and who display strong ability in their work.

SOAS GLOCAL AFALA Physical In-person Conference  –  The University of Nairobi, Kenya
Dates – October 18-21,

Theme – Mazingira Ya Lugha, Hali Ya Hewa Ya Kitamaduni, the GLOCAL AFALA 2023 theme, well symbolizes the complexity of the set of inter-subjective identities throughout African urban and suburban centres. These complex climates are a fertile ground for Linguistic Anthropological attention, while scholars can draw from a range of peripheral fields, to work on these geographic and cultural localities. The SOAS GLOCAL AFALA 2023 invites work that addresses the complexity of African linguistic landscapes and their cultural climates. Papers and posters should acknowledge and describe processes of linguistic complexity at these African cultural centres, and by those scholars working on African linguistic cultural centres.
