The African Studies Program celebrates its first fifty years!

The Wisconsin African Studies Program will celebrate its 50th anniversary during a series of events held throughout 2011-12, including lectures, exhibits and film.

We especially want to alert alumni to our main event: a 3-day symposium featuring alumni, discussions of current trends in African Studies across the disciplines, art exhibits, films, performances, and a party celebrating all that African Studies at Wisconsin and its alumni around the world have accomplished.

Join us looking back—and forward to another fifty years.

50 Forward: A Half-Century of African Studies at Wisconsin
