Affiliated Faculty

Open-House-Affiliated-Faculty.jpg

A priority for our Center is to facilitate and nurture a community of HU scholars with interest in Africa. Affiliated Faculty at the Center for African Studies devote 25 - 100% of their research, teaching, and/or service to the study of Africa and represent a wide range of departments and colleges across campus.

We include all faculty with active or aspirational research and/or teaching interests in Africa as affiliated faculty, and look forward to promoting their work and scholarship on our website and throughout our networks. We invite faculty to share with us what they are doing so that we can publicize it to a wider audience.

Affiliate faculty are eligible for CfAS course and travel awards, research grants, funding for books, and more.
