The African Studies Program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison invites you to join us for BIG STORIES + CLOSE (UP) RESEARCH: Health and Science in the African World on April 15-16, 2016.  This conference brings together a diverse group of scholars to explore the relationship between deeply grounded research and the larger narratives we tell about health and science in the African world. One of the main purposes of the conference is to generate conversation and discussion. To that end, we have organized several non-traditional panels. Each panelist will take 5-10 minutes to present on a case study, an object, an event, a data set, or a photograph, and to connect it to a “big story” about health in Africa or the African Diaspora. Panelists will then engage in conversation with the audience following each set of presentations.  To learn more and register, visit http://africa.wisc.edu/health/
