The Public Humanities and Modern Africa: An Interdisciplinary Symposium
September 2, 2015 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
Scholars and practitioners of history, anthropology, archaeology, art, education research design, geography, and library and information sciences from Maseno University in Kenya, Arizona State University, Bowling Green State University, Hamilton College, Minnesota State University, Texas Southern University, the University of Connecticut, and Cleveland State University gather to explore how the humanities, informed by best practices in community-engaged and digital scholarship, can play a transformative role in modern Africa. Building upon MaCleKi, a National Endowment for the Humanities-funded collaboration between CSU and Maseno University to build the first humanities-based mobile app in East Africa, this symposium will engage scholars, students, teachers, museum professionals, librarians, and anyone with an interest in African culture and society, digital humanities, and the future of developing world.
This event also kicks off the ESC’s 2015-16 workshop series Teaching About Africa.
CEU credits are available.
