The College of Humanities (CoHU) of the University of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, was established in October 2013 after splitting the then College of Arts and Social Sciences, with a view to enhancing efficiency in general, and this year marks a decade of its existence. In commemorating this milestone, we wish to reflect on the journeying we have done since then. Thus, we are pleased to announce a call for abstracts for the Humanities Conference 2023 on the theme Celebrating African Humanities for Inclusive Growth. The conference will be held in September 2023 at the University of Dar es Salaam.
