In case you missed it, next week marks the return of the UBC Africa Awareness Initiative (AAI) Conference Week for 2014 (Jan. 20-24). Since 2002, this annual UBC student-run organization “aim[s] to continually produce outstanding academic forums to encourage critical discussions pertaining to the relevance of the African continent, the Diaspora and its increasing involvement in the global community”.
For 2013/2014, the AAI has four new initiatives in addition to its annual conference. Learn more about these initiatives and the conference at: http://aaiconferenceweek2014.org/about-aai-2/.
