The theme for the 2023 CAAS conference is 'African reckonings and futures'. The conference theme aims to build on the Congress theme of “Reckonings and Re-imaginings” which grapples with profound and potentially existential global challenges, using them as a generative springboard for rethinking how we think, act, and live in the world. The CAAS conference theme continues conversations from past editions, which focused on Equality, Diversity, Inclusion, and Decolonization (2022) as well as the concept of Ubuntu (2021), stressing questions around the ‘reckonings’ that we should be discussing in the context of African studies, and thinking through the bases for a re-making of African studies and Afrofuturism.
