The H-Net Community: Building Bridges


November, 1998 - Sponsored by H-Net, Humanities & Social Sciences OnLine, Michigan State University; West African Research Association (University of Wisconsin, Madison); West African Research Center (Dakar).

H-West-Africa is dedicated to enhancing research, service, and teaching in the field on the region of West Africa: its history, culture, science and development. It seeks to bring together -- for purposes of discussion, exchange of information, the conduct and dissemination of research, and sharing on information and data about teaching and learning -- students, scholars, professionals, intellectuals, and others throughout the world who are interested in the past, present and future of West Africa and the enhancement of knowledge and understanding about the region. It will seek to develop resources for the enhancement of that knowledge and understanding everywhere, but particularly in West Africa and around West African institutions of higher education.

In the coming years H-West-Africa will also play a significant role in disseminating information about establishing connectivity systems which permit e-mail and Internet access to more and more participants in West Africa, with the best quality and the lowest cost.

The discussions and information will be expressed in two languages: English and French. The editors will make appropriate brief summaries of information in the other language, as well as providing table of contents for each set of communications (weekly digest, bi-weekly digest, etc.).

H-West-Africa is sponsored by the African Studies Center, Michigan State University; the West African Research Association (Secretariat at the University of Wisconsin, Madison), and the West African Research Center (headquartered in Dakar). It is advised by a board of scholars.
