Research Africa Network: Opportunities and Challenges
This will be a roundtable discussion of Research Africa, an Africa Initiative-funded mailing list. The purpose of the platform is to develop and facilitate a scholarly network on and about Africa and African issues. Its primary task is:
¿ to facilitate an exchange of information on publications, workshops, events, and conferences related to Africa;
¿ to facilitate an exchange of information between stakeholders of knowledge production in Africa by inviting and registering these institutions into the network of Research Africa;
¿ to use English, French, and Arabic in translating and disseminating research and funding opportunities that can help these African institutions;
¿ to make Research Africa a vibrant and vigorous networking tool for the dissemination and production of academic material in Africa;
¿ to generate networks and synergies among scholars at Duke and beyond through the vertical integration of information about Africa and make this information legible to a global community of stakeholders.
