Call for Papers for the 9th International Interdisciplinary Conference, to be held in Nairobi, Kenya on June 26 to 28, 2019 at Multimedia University of Kenya

 

General conference theme: “Global Trends in Africa’s Development”

 

Conference Venue: Multimedia University of Kenya, Nairobi, Kenya

 

Sponsors: Multimedia University of Kenya, Kenya Scholars and Studies Association (KESSA), Centre for Democracy, Research and Development (CEDRED) and Multimedia University of Kenya and African Interdisciplinary Studies Association (AISA)

 

There are old and new trends influencing development in Africa, existing side by side. Some African governments have dismantled what they regarded as colonial blueprints and created their own. Other governments have created new partnerships with varying degree of success. From the 1990s, African countries have been dealing with global influences many of which are from the West and East. What are some of the indigenous approaches to development in Africa? What are some of the influences that have come from Europe, North America and Asia and to what extent have they succeeded? These are some of the issues that the conference will be seeking to answer.

 

Organized and hosted by Multimedia University of Kenya, African Interdisciplinary Studies Association (AISA) and the Centre for Democracy, Research and Development (CEDRED), this 9th International Interdisciplinary Conference will be held on June 26 to 28, 2019 at Nairobi, Kenya. The conference will bring together scholars from all over the world to make presentations on matters that touch on Africa.

Amutabi at mauriceamutabi@gmail.com or neddylinnet@gmail.com or Amutabi@yahoo.com or Amutabi@gmail.com  or centrefordrd@gmail.com

 

The deadline for submission of full papers or PowerPoint presentation is May 30, 2019. Most papers presented at the conference will be selected and published in edited volumes and journals affiliated to African Interdisciplinary Studies Association (AISA) and the Centre for Democracy, Research and Development (CEDRED).

1st Draft Program for the 8th Annual International Interdisciplinary Conference, Nairobi, Kenya

Welcome statement to the 8th Annual International Interdisciplinary Conference, Nairobi, Kenya

 

By Prof. Maurice N. Amutabi

President, AISA

Vice President, KESSA

Co-convener

 

The Chief Guest, Guest of Honour, Vice Chancellor of Multimedia University, other Vice Chancellors present, DVCs, Registrars, Deans, Directors, Lecturers, Distinguished Guests, Speakers, Paper Presenters, AISA and KESSA Members, Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to Joint Multimedia University of Kenya Conference 2018, in Nairobi, Kenya! Karibu (welcome to Kenya)!!

 

I am pleased to welcome participants to this 8th Annual International Interdisciplinary Conference. It is rare privilege to welcome such high concentration of professors, lecturers, young scholars, students from Kenya and abroad all in one place! The Joint KESSA-AISA-Multimedia University of Kenya Conference provides a unique opportunity for all of us. To my knowledge, this is the only Conference where you can meet colleagues from different disciplinary specializations, where you can reunite with your undergraduate political science, sociology, geography, physics, chemistry or mathematics classmate or professor. Not only that, you can meet your old high school friends, who are now an aerospace engineer, computer scientist, biochemist, chair of department, dean, chairman of a large corporation or even a Member of County Assembly or Member of Parliament or Senate!

 

We have the privilege of holding our conference at Multimedia University of Kenya which has become our home for the past three conferences.  I wish to warmly thank fellow Vice Chancellor Ambassador Professor Festus Kaberia, the Vice Chancellor of Multimedia University of Kenya for his kind hospitality in these remarkable conference facilities. It is an opportune time to renew contacts and discuss problems of mutual interest with delegates from all over the world as stakeholders in Africa’s development.

 

The general conference theme for 2018 is “Development from below and from above in Africa” which deals on how Africa has been willing and unwilling recipient of many models of development, from below and above. various papers presented deal with how some countries deal with top down while others have been bottom up, have produced mixed results. Many of these models have been developed outside Africa while others have been generated largely from within the continent. The theme for 2019 conference is “Global Trends in Africa’s Development” (whose subthemes are covered at the back of this program) and which will seek to address the various influences, internal and external, to Africa’s development.

 

Placing people in panels is often one of the most difficult talks for the conference organizing committee. Although these are never cast in iron and stone the hope usually is that people would present where they are allocated. We are excited about the increasing interest in our conference and our books and journals. The fear, sometimes mentioned in discussing the opportunity of continuing series of international conferences such as ours on development in Africa, has been that the importance of Africa in global discourses may be diminishing in interest is clearly eliminated when one sees the substantial number of papers submitted to this conference from Kenya to Nigeria, Zimbabwe to South Africa and Cameroon to Senegal. The responsible committees did a lot of work in placing papers in parallel sessions in a way that allows diversity in panels, experience and shared topics. Care has been taken to ensure that we do not place only people in one panel from the same university or country. In this difficult selection procedure some arbitrariness, unfortunately, could not be avoided and the Scientific Committee hopes for the kind understanding from the paper presenters. We have also been careful to make sure that the chairs of panels present last so that they can save time for their panels. We assume that if they are careless with time management then it is their paper that will suffer lack of time, thereby instating a sense of responsibility on them indirectly.

 

This conference owes many debts to the conference sponsors. We would like to thank Sponsors of this conference: Multimedia University of Kenya (MMUK), African Interdisciplinary Studies Association (AISA), Kenya Scholars and Studies Association (KESSA), and the Centre for Democracy, Research and Development (CEDRED), Nairobi for making this conference possible. We would like to thank our invited keynote speakers: Prof. Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o (University of California, Irvine, California, USA), Prof. Frederick M. Nafukho, PhD (Texas A & M University, College Station, Texas, USA), Hilary Kowino, PhD (University of Minnesota, USA), Prof. Judith Mbula Bahemuka, University of Nairobi, Kenya and Prof. Shadrack Wanjala Nasong’o, PhD (Rhodes College, Memphis, Tennessee, USA for agreeing to our invitation. My mentor Prof. Toyin Falola is very proud of what we are doing here and we hope that he can agree to be our Chief Guest at our next year’s conference.

 

Over the years, we have the numbers to this conference going up, from 14 countries represented at our first conference to the current 35. There are three countries which are sending delegates to this conference this year for the first time, from Lesotho, Cameroon and Djibouti. We would like to applaud the big Kenyan contingent present at this conference followed by delegates from Nigeria, Uganda, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Tanzania, Zambia, Botswana, Namibia, Ghana, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Denmark, Australia, Japan, Finland, Sweden, Germany, India, USA, UK, Rwanda, Lesotho, Togo, Turkey, Somalia, and many others. We thank all paper presenters and especially those who submitted full papers which have been published in the journals and edited volumes. Feel to help yourself to as many copies as possible, knowing that you will be required to carry these publications to many interviews in future, and need at least two copies for each so as not to carry dog-eared publications to interviews like some people are doing now. This is advice from an elder who has been to a few dozen interviews.

 

We would like to thank our able conference organizing committee team which has worked so tirelessly to ensure the success of the 8th Joint KESSA-AISA-Multimedia University of Kenya Annual International Conference. They have worked extremely hard for the last year to prepare an outstanding conference, receiving abstracts, responding to inquiries, giving direction and forwarding review comments on papers from peers, among others. During this conference, we have attempted to replicate the spirit of the original “Symposium” written by Plato, the great Greek philosopher. As a result, we have prepared many “Colloquia”, “Symposiums” and “Forums” to discuss the truth and beauty of arts and humanities, social sciences, pure and applied science, medicine, engineering, computer and information sciences and technology and education, while celebrating our global friendships. Your dedicated support and active participation have made the Joint KESSA-AISA-Multimedia University of Kenya Conference a record-breaking event.

 

The 8th Joint Annual International Interdisciplinary Conference of 2018 is special in many ways. First, we have received abstracts from 35 countries; exceeding 33 of 2017. Second, we have received over 600 abstracts, more than the 500 we received last year. Third, the number of participants from Kenya has increased with 28 universities represented at this year’s conference. Fourth, we have exceeded the total number of full papers ever presented and the total number of people ever registered. That is why five books and several journal issues have come out of this conference. Finally, I am impressed by the wide spectrum of topics as seen in the program, on very current issues and from broad breadth of disciplines. Few new colloquia were added this year, such as Engineering and Applied Technology, Globalization and Development, all to make the technical programming not only strong and attractive, but to widen the scope of the conference. This year we have attracted some exhibitors and bookshops which will be displaying and selling their merchandise. Like the previous year, this Joint Annual International Interdisciplinary Conference was processed completely on-line, but we have plans to improve service delivery in acceptance rate and feedback on inquiries. In future we hope to manage the whole conference with a comprehensive on-line process for abstract and paper submission, conference registration, hotel reservation, and other services.

 

Over the years we have been learning from our experience, from which we learnt a lot of things, good and bad; and each year we try our best to put those experiences to effective use by striving to make it better and more successful. This year the Organizing Committee has put in a lot of effort and challenging work to make it a wonderful experience for everyone involved, be it the organizing team, the various paper presenters, the peer review process and selection of papers for inclusion in books and journals. We are very excited to introduce two new journals which are now part of our conference. We welcomed the Journal of African Interdisciplinary Studies (JAIS) last year followed closely by the Journal of Popular Education in Africa (JOPEA). We realize that there is a lot of work to be done to make the journals successful through quality contributions and quality peer review process.

 

We hope the conference provides opportunity to share and exchange ideas and research experiences. We are aware of the tremendous efforts made, and the large investment in funds and scientific effort by various governments and organizations in funding various research projects whose results are presented at this conference.  We wish them every success in their noble endeavours to help Africa and the rest of humanity in dealing with some of the development problems in the world.  We are only too anxious to hear our distinguished colleagues, senior and young scholars report on their recent research findings in their various fields of study, where graduate students and other stakeholders will be listening with a lot of interest, to pick latest ideas, fads, vocabulary and knowledge. They will learn the new agency, voice and space in discourses on development in Africa and how to internalize or deconstruct them. It has become commonplace to say that scholars should seek to be part of the solution to development and not part of the problem.  The quality and variety of papers is testimony to scholars being part of solution.

 

The presentations from many countries at this 2018 conference also reveal a realization on how scholarship is interdependent. No matter how much we can do by ourselves on the national level, whether it is research or development, it is never enough, and we are often to reach out to other parts of the world to reinforce each other. In a spirit of true cooperation, we in Africa have been reaching out and I am excited about the big representation from our partners and friends from the West, East, South and North. We need collective effort of all past, present and future civilizations and cultures, to join an action-oriented effort to attack and solve the problems afflicting humanity today, through research.

 

The Conference Organizing Committee chaired by Professor Engineer Abel Mayaka, and Prof. Maurice Amutabi and our secretariat headed by Dr. Linnet Hamasi, Dr. Magdalene Ndeto Bore and other members who include Dr. Pamela Akinyi Wadende, Tony Jonanga, Kelways Chimoto, Abigael Asiko Kutwa, Alex Jackan, Alma Sikanga, Julia Enoi, Eliud Opwoche, Selly Sikanga, Betty Nambala, Noel Okoto, Jane Nambiri Ouma, Samuel Baraka and Sr. Lucy Ochieng, are committed to providing maximum hospitality. Please feel free to ask questions to committee members. We are here to serve you. Enjoy your participation in the Joint Annual International Interdisciplinary Conference and memorable time visiting the Nairobi city and surrounding areas. The conference has organised for a tour around Nairobi to exciting and important places for which you will pay additional US50. The places which we shall visit during the excursion include Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, Giraffe Centre, Bomas (homesteads) of Kenya Centre, Stakemark Animal Park and Maasai Market.

 

We would like to thank all the chairs of panels and parallel sessions for volunteering to chair. We appreciate you for doing this community service and do not forget to add this service to your CVs. Some of you will be chairing a conference panel for the first time and we ask that you get in touch with veterans and ask them how it is done. You also have the freedom to ask them to co-chair the session with you so that you learn. It is such an important task and we hope you enjoy the work of moderating colleagues.

 

We want to make special mention of presenters who are coming back to this conference for more than three times. There are very many in the program that we can point out. We will be giving them special mention during the conference in the plenary and a big appreciation. These regular comers to the conference are the ones who have made this conference to grow and become a regular event in the calendar of academic activities in Africa. We feel very proud when this conference is mentioned in the same breadth with some of the most famous conferences on the continent and abroad. There are many advantages that our conference gives. We encourage mentoring and networking. We provide useful feedback in peer reviews. We are very faithful in peer reviewing and publishing papers presented at this conference and that is why the conference has become very popular. There are tens of scholars who are promoted annually because of writing chapters in our books and articles in our journals. We are very excited and humbled to play that mentoring role.

 

We encourage that registration begins on 27th June 2018 so that the registration does not interfere with the operations of the campus when it starts on June 28. You will be provided with a conference bag and program as well as stationary. Participants will wear blue tags with their names and country, while conference organizing committee and members of conference secretariat will wear red tags. If you have any problem, feel free to stop anyone with a red tag for assistance. We have 12 breakout sessions organized in different places. You will be given direction on how to get there.

 

We hope that you will have exciting time in Nairobi, Kenya and we hope that you return next year with even more colleagues for the Joint Annual International Interdisciplinary Conference 2019! I wish you a delightful and stimulating conference. Have a wonderful stay in Nairobi and take back home our greetings and we look forward to seeing you next year.

 

Before I turn over the conference to the chairman of the first session, Prof (Eng) Abel Mayaka, I would like to ask Professor Justus Mbae, the Vice Chancellor of the Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA), who is a friend to this conference, to say a few words to the audience before inviting Ambassador Prof. Festus Kaberia, to welcome delegates to the conference on behalf of Multimedia University of Kenya.

 

Thank you (Asante sana),

Conference Venue: Multimedia University of Kenya, Nairobi, Kenya

There are old and new trends influencing development in Africa, existing side by side. Some African governments have dismantled what they regarded as colonial blueprints and created their own. Other governments have created new partnerships with varying degree of success. From the 1990s, African countries have been dealing with global influences many of which are from the West and East. What are some of the indigenous approaches to development in Africa? What are some of the influences that have come from Europe, North America and Asia and to what extent have they succeeded? These are some of the issues that the conference will be seeking to answer.

 

Organized and hosted by Multimedia University of Kenya, African Interdisciplinary Studies Association (AISA) and the Centre for Democracy, Research and Development (CEDRED), this 9th International Interdisciplinary Conference will be held on June 26 to 28, 2019 at Nairobi, Kenya.

Africa has been willing and unwilling recipient of many models of development, some of which have been top down while others have been bottom up. Many of these models have been developed outside Africa while others have been generated largely from within the continent. Fifty years after independence, there are many countries in Africa which are still struggling to find which models are suitable to their development needs. They are still looking for way forward in terms of which development models work better. There is an emergence of development models that are hybrids of bottom up and top down in which there is a middle ground. in Kenya for example, the creation of the devolved units at County level is seen as a middle ground, the same to states in Nigeria and some regions in South Africa. The tensions between devolved units and national or federal governments in Africa suggest that hybrids have their own challenges as well. Julius Nyerere’s Ujamaa and Jomo Kenyatta’s Harambee have often been seen as development models from above while others see them as having grassroots origins. What are some of the top down or bottom up development models that have worked successfully in Africa? To what extent are these development models internal or external? How can we determine success of a development model? What are the parameters and characteristics that one needs to look for, to determine success or failure of a development model? What is the way forward? These are some of the questions that the conference organizers hope will be answered by participants.

 

Organized and hosted by Multimedia University of Kenya, African Interdisciplinary Studies Association (AISA) and the Centre for Democracy, Research and Development (CEDRED), this 8th International Interdisciplinary Conference will be held on June 27 to 30, 2018 at Nairobi, Kenya.

Africa has been willing and unwilling recipient of many models of development, some of which have been top down while others have been bottom up. Many of these models have been developed outside Africa while others have been generated largely from within the continent. Fifty years after independence, there are many countries in Africa which are still struggling to find which models are suitable to their development needs. They are still looking for way forward in terms of which development models work better. There is an emergence of development models that are hybrids of bottom up and top down in which there is a middle ground. in Kenya for example, the creation of the devolved units at County level is seen as a middle ground, the same to states in Nigeria and some regions in South Africa. The tensions between devolved units and national or federal governments in Africa suggest that hybrids have their own challenges as well. Julius Nyerere’s Ujamaa and Jomo Kenyatta’s Harambee have often been seen as development models from above while others see them as having grassroots origins. What are some of the top down or bottom up development models that have worked successfully in Africa? To what extent are these development models internal or external? How can we determine success of a development model? What are the parameters and characteristics that one needs to look for, to determine success or failure of a development model? What is the way forward? These are some of the questions that the conference organizers hope will be answered by participants.

 

Organized and hosted by Multimedia University of Kenya, African Interdisciplinary Studies Association (AISA) and the Centre for Democracy, Research and Development (CEDRED), this 8th International Interdisciplinary Conference will be held on June 27 to 30, 2018 at Nairobi, Kenya.

Call for Papers for the 8th International Interdisciplinary Conference, to be held in Nairobi, Kenya on June 27 to 30, 2018 at Multimedia University of Kenya

Call for Papers for the 8th International Interdisciplinary Conference, to be held in Nairobi, Kenya on June 27 to 30, 2018 at Multimedia University of Kenya

 

General conference theme: Development from below and from above in Africa

 

Conference Venue: Multimedia University of Kenya, Nairobi, Kenya

 

Sponsors: African Interdisciplinary Studies Association (AISA), Kenya Scholars and Studies Association (KESSA), Centre for Democracy, Research and Development (CEDRED) and Multimedia University of Kenya

 

Africa has been willing and unwilling recipient of many models of development, some of which have been top down while others have been bottom up. Many of these models have been developed outside Africa while others have been generated largely from within the continent. Fifty years after independence, there are many countries in Africa which are still struggling to find which models are suitable to their development needs. They are still looking for way forward in terms of which development models work better. There is an emergence of development models that are hybrids of bottom up and top down in which there is a middle ground. in Kenya for example, the creation of the devolved units at County level is seen as a middle ground, the same to states in Nigeria and some regions in South Africa. The tensions between devolved units and national or federal governments in Africa suggest that hybrids have their own challenges as well. Julius Nyerere’s Ujamaa and Jomo Kenyatta’s Harambee have often been seen as development models from above while others see them as having grassroots origins. What are some of the top down or bottom up development models that have worked successfully in Africa? To what extent are these development models internal or external? How can we determine success of a development model? What are the parameters and characteristics that one needs to look for, to determine success or failure of a development model? What is the way forward? These are some of the questions that the conference organizers hope will be answered by participants.

 

Organized and hosted by African Interdisciplinary Studies Association (AISA) and the Centre for Democracy, Research and Development (CEDRED), this 8th International Interdisciplinary Conference will be held on June 27 to 30, 2018 at Nairobi, Kenya.
