The Africa Seminar (AfriSem) provides an interdisciplinary and area-defined setting for graduate students studying Africa. AfriSem is a forum for works-in-progress by graduate students, Northwestern faculty and visitors. AfriSem provides opportunities to develop, present, and draw advice on papers and research proposals and invites guest speakers to address special topics.
It is open to graduate students (and advanced undergraduates by permission) from any discipline, department, or school of Northwestern, at whatever stage of completion of their graduate program. Graduate students are encouraged to participate in AfriSem throughout their graduate years.
AfriSem meets every other week in the evenings and is student-driven. Faculty facilitator for the 2012-2013 Academic Year is Professor Wendy Griswold from the Department of Sociology.
