Just back from the biennial meeting of SAfA, in Toulouse. Congratulations to the organisers (in Toulouse, Geneva and Brussels) for an excellent, rich programme.
The conference was for many of us – not least for EU migrants to the UK such as myself – cast under a gloomy cloud by the Brexit vote, but despite this it was good, as ever, to catch up with colleagues and friends.
Annalisa, Shiura and I did a cowrie-focused paper in the trans-Saharan session, and Didier and I chaired a Crossroads session (here HaourNDah_session 22 is the paper).
