African Studies

The Institute of African Studies welcomes you on its homepage

The IAS promotes and coordinates African studies in 12 subject groups distributed over the six faculties of the University of Bayreuth. This broad range of disciplines within African studies is unique in the German-speaking countries. The IAS is also responsible for coordinating research and teaching, training junior researchers, and promoting the exchange of information between persons and institutions engaged in research and teaching in or on Africa.
