| Complete title of the conference : Sources for African history in African languages written in Arabic (Ajami), African and Latin scripts in Eastern and Southern Africa
The international editing and publishing project Fontes Historiae Africanae - Sources of African History is one of the many international publication projects under the general auspices of the Union Académique Internationale based in Brussels. The project was adopted in 1964 to sponsor the publication of written source materials for the history of Africa through wide-ranging international co-operation. The principal aims of the project as originally conceived have been to prepare and publish critical editions and translations of written and oral sources for African history, original historical texts or collections of documents assembled to address particular topics in the history of sub-Saharan Africa in the original language together with a translation into either English or French, unless the text itself was in one of these languages.
The International Committee of the project will organize from 15 to 19 April a international conference titled : Sources for African history in African languages written in Arabic (Ajami), African and Latin scripts in Eastern and Southern Africa. The conference will be held at the Univesity of Maputo in Mozambique.
The conference will be followed by a meeting of the Chairs of the national Committees of the FHA.
