Mega-Chad is an international network concerned with multidisciplinary research on the history and evolution of societies in the Lake Chad basin.
Following a first multidisciplinary meeting held in Paris in 1984, the network has grown progressively to its present total of about 400 members in some twenty countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Cameroon, Canada, Central African Republic, Chad, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Great Britain, Hungary, Japan, Netherlands, Niger, Nigeria, Russia, Switzerland, USA and others.
The network name "Mega-Chad" evokes the maximal extension of Lake Chad several millennia ago and refers to a vast area extending over much of Niger, Chad, northern Nigeria and northern Cameroon and the CAR within which are many shared cultural traditions, influences and patterns of exchange.
