The Director's Message

Another academic year has come to an end, which means it’s time to sing the praises of our students and faculty. Recent graduate Kara Moskowitz has received a fellowship at the National History Center. Daniel Domingues and Molly McCullers, also recent graduates, were awarded teaching prizes at their respective institutions. Abby Meert received FLAS funding and will be in Uganda conducting pre-dissertation research. Special applause goes to David Eltis, who has been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, adding to the many prestigious prizes our students and faculty have received ranging from Guggenheim fellowships to the McArthur Prize.

We had a busy year in the research seminar, with twelve presentations from leading Africanists. We will have an equally full series next year, on top of other events. Most notably, Emory is co-hosting the African Literature Association conference next spring.  Stay tuned as our planning for next academic year unfolds. 

With best wishes for the summer,

Clifton Crais
