Swahili Colloquium



The Swahili Colloquium

The Swahili Colloquium has become a well-established forum in Bayreuth. Founded in 1987, the Colloquium has regularly been supported by the German Research Council (DFG). Every year, we invite scholars and researchers from different disciplines, who work on various aspects of the language and the respective culture(s) Eastern Africa and the diaspora. The multidisciplinary approach and the wide range of contributions from linguistics, literary studies to anthropology and history particularly account for its appeal. We are always looking forward to welcoming new participants at the Swahili Colloquium. The conference languages are Swahili and English.
