The African Studies Program (ASP) hosts scholars, artists, and professionals from around the world whose interests and expertise engage with Africa and the global African diaspora. A mutually beneficial relationship, Visiting Scholars are able to avail themselves of the extraordinary resources at IU, while contributing to the intellectual and cultural life of the university and greater Bloomington through public lectures, performances, film screenings, exhibits, student conversations, and more.
Visiting scholars are often invited by a faculty sponsor with whom they are engaged in collaborative research or creative activity. In coordination with our faculty and their units, ASP hosts a limited number of these Visiting Scholars each year. Visiting scholar appointments are not paid positions.
Visiting Scholars have the opportunity to work with a faculty member, use the facilities of the Herman B Wells Library, and take advantage of other resources on the Indiana University Bloomington campus.Meet our Visiting Scholars
