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