Our Work

The Center for African Studies focuses our activities on research initiatives that are pertinent to the African continent, hosts distinguished lectures on important topics facing the African continent, creates communities of practice on Africa-related topics through workshops to share knowledge with practitioners, and hosts international conferences in collaboration with organizations and institutions on the African continent to highlight current issues.

We consider 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 Program Manager by the sponsoring faculty member.
