We are excited to present an Africa series of talks to connect the community of people studying Africa or working in Africa -- including students, faculty, staff, and the wider Tucson community. We believe that with the exchange of information and building a diverse community of scholars focused on topics related to Africa, we can leverage our unique experiences to learn from each other and productively engage with topics about Africa.
