 Call for Participation: Is there an African University?

You are invited to contribute to a workshop that will focus on Africa as a specific region that is not well represented in higher education studies as well as in global images and imaginations of what a university in the 21st century looks like. We are interested in empirical and theoretical contributions that explore case studies, examples, and models of African Universities. We would like to discuss whether there is an “African University” and if so, what makes it “African”. Click here to download the Call for more information.
