Ann: African Studies in the Digital Age

Derek Peterson Discussion

Dear colleagues:

Some of you will be interested to hear of 'African Studies in the Digital Age', a ten-day workshop we're convening here in Ann Arbor beginning next week. The workshop is the second installment in an ongoing collaboration, generously funded by the Mellon Foundation, joining the University of Michigan African Studies Center with the Wits Institute for Social and Economic Research.

The workshop program, together with participant biographies, can be seen at this link:

Colleagues who are in the area are of course welcome to attend. If you would like to come, please send a note to Sandra Schulze at <> indicating which sessions you will attend. 

All good wishes, 


Derek Peterson, University of Michigan
