BOOKS FOR AFRICA - IBBY CONGRESS 2004 CALL FOR
PAPERS, WORKSHOPS & POSTER SESSIONS
In coming to Cape Town in September 2004, IBBY Congress
comes for the first time to Africa. BOOKS FOR AFRICA will have two broad
tracks - a celebration of the abundance of African storytelling &
its heritage all over the world; and then an exploration of how to provide
African young people with the books they urgently need.
The Programme Committee invites writers, artists, storytellers, librarians,
teachers, academics, youth workers, literacy & reading experts,
publishers, book sellers to send proposals for papers, practical workshops
and posters. See www.sacbf.org.za
for theme details.
Please send summary (in English or French) of your paper, workshop or
poster in about 200 words by mail or email. Include full contact details.
The deadline for submissions is 30 June 2003. You will be notified by
30 September 2003 whether your proposal has been accepted and will then
be given further information on required formats and deadlines. Presentations
will be in English or French. Speakers will have 20 minutes. Workshop
presenters will have 90 minutes.
It is understood that presenters pay the Congress registration fee.
However there is some travel & registration funding available for
speakers and delegates from Africa.
