Participant Applications Now Being Accepted for APSA’s Fourth Africa Workshop – Kenya 2011
The American Political Science Association (APSA) is accepting participant applications for its fourth Africa Workshop, entitled “Representation Reconsidered: Ethnic Politics and Africa’s Governance Institutions in Comparative Perspective.” It will take place July 23 to August 6, 2011 at the Institute for Development Studies (IDS) at the University of Nairobi.
The organizers, with a grant secured from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, will cover all the costs of participation (travel, lodging, meals, daily stipend, and materials) for up to 23 qualified applicants (20 African, plus 3 based in the U.S.). Professional fluency in English is absolutely required. Because the workshop will have a strong cross-regional component, US-based PhD students with expertise in either Africa or Latin America are encouraged to apply.
The workshop leaders are Todd Eisenstadt (American University, USA), Carl LeVan (American University, USA), Josephine Ahikire (Makerere University, Uganda), and Karuti Kanyinga (Institute for Development Studies, Kenya).
Program announcements, the 2011 Application Form, and more information about the workshop themes can be found online at the APSA Africa Workshop website, www.apsanet.org/africaworkshops.
The application deadline is March 14, 2011.
