You are cordially invited to attend a presentation and discussion event. For the 9th year in a row, we are continuing with the theme of FOCUS ON AFRICA. The purpose of the discussion is to encourage scholars with international interests to meet each other, stimulate each other’s thinking, and potentially lead to the creation of a broader research network and joint scholarship. Topics across the year are chosen to highlight the intersection among multiple disciplinary perspectives with a common geographical focus.

This annual event is sponsored by the MU African Interdisciplinary Studies Hub, Inclusion Diversity & Equity, African Graduate Professional Student Association, Black Studies, Peace Studies, Afro-Romance Institute, International Programs and CAFNR International Programs.
