GALA Conference postponed!
Posted on March 30, 2020
Following discussions with Samuel Nyanchoga and his colleagues at the Catholic University of Eastern Africa, we have decided to postpone the GALA conference to 2021 due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Even if international travel restrictions were to ease by September, it would simply be too complicated to prepare effectively for the conference in good time. We are planning the following:
- CUEA will host the conference in either July or September 2021.
- The theme, ‘Liberal Arts for Tomorrow’, will remain the same.
- We will reconsider the submissions we’ve already received as well as re-issue a call for proposals once the new date is confirmed.
- We will explore ways of enabling virtual participation at the conference in case of ongoing travel restrictions or other difficulties.
We are also planning some kind of virtual ‘event’ for 15-16 September 2020 (i.e. the original conference dates). Please watch this space!
