The conference will be a virtual conference.  It will be held at the beginning of October 2021.



Fostering English as a Vital Resource

On behalf of the members of the English Academy of Southern Africa, I would like to welcome you to our website and hope that you will be impressed by the range of activities we engage in, guided by the mission and vision articulated above. The Academy is involved, at grass roots level, with members of the teaching profession, as well as hosting a triennial conference that draws participants from neighbouring countries’ tertiary institutions as well an international pool of scholars.
The next Conference will take place in Durban, 15 – 18 September 2020. As you browse through the various sections in this site, you will discover the public lectures organised by the Academy as well as the prizes awarded to promote and reward writers. I hope you will be sufficiently enthused to join the Academy and contribute to the realisation of our goals.

Mbongeni Malaba, President
