Global Partners in East Africa


Global Partners Summer Seminar in Nairobi,
June 12-20, 2002

East Africa in Transition: Economy, Ethnicity, and Ecology

The Global Partners Project is pleased to announce the third interdisciplinary faculty seminar at the International Learning Center at the University of Nairobi. The seminar is open to faculty from any of the member institutions of the ACM, ACS, or GLCA, as well as to faculty from The University of Nairobi and other East African Universities.

Applicants may be of any discipline, at any professional level, with any level of experience in East Africa or African Studies. Preference will be given to former Nairobi seminar participants, members of the Task Force, and newly hired faculty. The seminar itself will reflect the interests and expertise of the host faculty at the University of Nairobi and those chosen from the US to attend; the topics and sessions will be developed in consultation with our partners in Kenya. Participants will present their own work, either formally or as discussion leaders/facilitators. To view an itinerary, please click here.

Global Partners Project will fund overseas travel and lodging expenses for faculty members from ACM, ACS, and GLCA colleges. In addition, an institutional contribution of five hundred dollars and support for travel from the home campus to the point of departure will be required for each participant. By accepting funding, participants agree to attend the entire seminar.
