The Center for African Studies considers requests to host, coordinate, sponsor or co-sponsor Africa-related events only if the event is supported by one of our faculty affiliates. Event requests should be sent to the Events and Fellows Officer by the sponsoring faculty member.
The Harvard International & Global History Seminar (HIGHS) is a forum for cutting-edge work in the fields of international and global history. The seminar, organized at the Department of History and generously supported by the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, meets several times each term on Wednesday afternoons. Adam Ewing received his PhD in History from Harvard University in 2011. Before joining the Department of African American Studies at VCU in 2014, he served as Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at Johns Hopkins University (2011-2013), and Mellon Assistant Professor at Vanderbilt University (2013-2014). His research focuses on the historical dynamics of power, identity, and political mobilization in the African diaspora.
