The MANSA convenes an International Conference on Mande Studies on a regular basis. Yet the very first International Conference on Manding Studies was convened in at SOAS, London, in 1972. From 1993 onwards, MANSA hosts International Conferences on Mande Studies. In June 2021, the Eleventh International Conference on Mande Studies will take place at Uppsala University (Sweden) in the form of a Webinar due to the coronavirus pandemic.
