This seminar fulfills the capstone requirement for the DAAS Graduate Certificate in African Studies, and for the Master’s in International and Regional Studies (MIRS) African Studies specialization. Students work on independent research projects that can form the basis of a master's thesis, dissertation chapter, analysis of a practicum experience, or publishable article with a focus in African Studies. Weekly readings will center on theoretical and methodological issues deemed relevant to the projects pursued by seminar participants. We will collectively devise the reading list after the initial seminar session.
