Over 70 courses related to African Studies are being offered, across the University, this coming academic year. Be sure to register!
Many new courses have been added this year, including graduate seminar AAAS 209a: Africa Rising? New African Economies/Cultures and Their Global Implications. This workshop will explore Africa’s changing place in the world – and the new economies, legalities, socialities, and cultural forms that have arisen there. It will also interrogate the claim that the African present is a foreshadowing of processes beginning to occur elsewhere; that, therefore, it is a productive source of theory about current conditions world-wide. The workshop, open to faculty and students, will meet Mondays from 6:00-7:30. 15 students will also meet on Mondays, 12:00-1:30.

Enrolling now for Spring 2013, this course is a multidisciplinary undergraduate colloguium supported by the President’s Innovation Fund for International Experiences (PIFIE). The colloquium examines malaria as a prototypical global health challenge and offers students a deep understanding of its complexities from a variety of disciplines and perspectives — all the way from the genes to the globe. In close collaboration with Harvard faculty from across the University, students will gain a practical understanding of how malaria both impacts and is impacted by economic, poitical, cultural, biological, and historical factors.
