“GSAS” is a student-run organization that brings together graduate students from across the IU campus, from ten professional schools and from numerous disciplines, who have research interests based in Africa or its global African diaspora.
Our goals are to promote ethical and collaborative research surrounding Africa’s rich history, cultures, societies, contemporary realities, and imagined futures. We foster discussion between students and faculty, sponsor events such as our annual national graduate student symposium, and graduate student professionalization. We also address the needs of graduate students in Africa-content disciplines; for example, we have an elected representative who serves as the graduate student liaison and voice on the African Studies Program’s Executive Board – a governing entity.
