                    Electronic Technology Group
                    African Studies Association
                        1999 Annual Meeting
                    November 11-14, Philadelphia

The Electronic Technology Group of the African Studies Association is
interested in receiving paper proposals for its panels occuring within
the ASA's  annual conference. The group is intetested in research and
reports on  applications regarding the convergence of information and
communication  technologies (ICTs) as they relate to Africa and the
practices of Africanists.

Convergent technologies include, but are not limited to, computer
networks, CD-ROMS, satellites, radio, television, video,
videocoferencing,  telecommunications, and the digitization of cultural
forms. There is  also interest in the cultural contextualisation and
policy frameworks  within which ICTs are inscribed.

ETG, as a Sponsored Organization is allowed two unreviewed panels per
conference. This year, the themes are:


                                 THEME I

                      Dissemination and Use:
                Assessing The Uses of ICTs in Africa

Since the ealy 1990s there have been many initiatives aimed at African
'conectivity: introducing ICTs with the Internet at the core focused on
development, health and educationwith a special focus on training and
expanding connectivity to rural areas. The aim of this panel is to
assess the results of the many initiatives: How are ICTs actualy being
USED: what are the main sectors that use ICTs? Why are some sectors
using ICTs more than others?

The panel hopes to address issues pertaining to who is really  benefiting
from ICTs: whether the public sector, the private sector  and/or the
educational sector; how the life of an average  person in Africa has been
affected by ICTs; the extent to  which ICTs are used effectively within
African  countries/regions; lessons that can be learned from the  African
experience of ICTs.



                               Theme II
                 Teaching and Learning about Africa:
               Enhancing Africanist Pedagogy with ICTs

In North America ICTs anchored by the Internet have migrated from
library on-line resources through e-mail facilities into a  multi-media
cornucopia. While possibly not yet fully expressed at K-12,  the ICT
resource base for teaching/learning about Africa is established  at the
college/university level. The panel invites Africanists to  evaluate the
reality and promise of ICTs for teaching and learning  about Africa with
a particular focus on classroom. The Panel will  review and assess
specific uses and how experiences could be duplicated  and enriched.
