The American Political Science Association is seeking proposals from political scientists interested in serving as co-leaders for 7th annual APSA Africa Workshop. This two-week program will take place in July 2014. Submissions must come from a team of two-US based and two Africa-based scholars. Those applying to be co-leaders must propose a workshop theme, location, and African institutional partner. Workshop leaders will serve as academic directors of the project who will be responsible for all substantive content. A modest honorarium will be provided and related expenses (meals, transportation, lodging, incidentals) will be covered. Workshop administration and logistics will be led by APSA staff in conjunction with the local partners in Africa. The application deadline is November 4, 2013.
Funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the 6th annual Africa Workshop is part of an ongoing multi-year effort to support political science research and teaching in Sub-Saharan Africa through a series of residential political science workshops. Previous workshops were held in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso (2013); Gaborone, Botswana (2012); Nairobi, Kenya (2011); Dar es Salaam, Tanzania (2010); Accra, Ghana (2009); and Dakar, Senegal (2008).
