Associate Professor Kelly Askew has been awarded a fellowship at the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin for the full 2012-13 academic year working on her book manuscript entitled, "Postsocialist Poetics". The project contextualizes and analyzes contemporary Swahili poetry and song to uncover how Tanzanians and Zanzibaris in the United Republic of Tanzania are reflecting on and responding to the changes in their countries since the unraveling of the socialist systems that held sway until the mid-1980s. Professor Askew will be part of a group of scholars drawn from many areas of the world and all studying various aspects of the arts.


Congratulations Professor Askew!
