Welcome new students!
Welcome new students to the second half-century of the African Studies Program! We just finished in the spring with a wonderful year-long tribute to the founding of this program in 1964, to honor the newly decolonizing surge in Africa. We are glad that you have joined us to think about the role of Africa in the world today, and to immerse yourself in Africa's languages, peoples, cultures, and rapidly changing social environments. We dedicate this year, 2014-15, to consideration of human rights issues in Africa, and maternal and child health in Africa, and we invite you to join with us investigating these important themes and applying them in the work you do with our great faculty and staff.
