For almost two decades, the Department of Afroamerican and African Studies has coordinated the Africa Workshop series and has invited researchers from around the world to share their latest work to enthusiastic audiences. By focusing on presentations by scholars dedicated to examining the continent of Africa and its diaspora, the campus community is kept up to date on the most recent work of their colleagues. In 2008, with the establishment of the African Studies Center in the International Institute, DAAS gained a collaborator and cosponsor and the Africa Workshop remains a major programmatic component for both entities. The series continues for the 2018-2019 academic year. This year, the Africa Workshop will be coordinated by DAAS faculty members Anne Pitcher, Derek Peterson, and Amal Fadlalla.
