Graduate Students in African Studies (GSAS)

Graduate Students in African Studies exists as a forum that brings together graduate students from across a variety of disciplines in order to discuss their common interest in the study of Africa. The main objectives of this organization are to promote the study and research of African societies and cultural productions, to foster fellowship between students and faculty, and to address the needs of African Studies students within the Program. Each spring the organization hosts a graduate student symposium that brings students from across the country to Bloomington to share their cutting-edge research and engage in important inter-disciplinary theoretical discussions facing the field of African Studies today. In recent years, Graduate Students in African Studies have also hosted film series and guest speakers on campus.
