Collection Description

Historical Note

The University of Georgia's African Studies Institute (ASI) began as a faculty interest group in 1987. At that time, African studies was a fledgling academic discipline, particularly in the United States. The African Studies Program, which became the African Studies Institute in 2001, made UGA a leader in studying and sharing knowledge from the societies and cultures of Africa.

The ASI is part of the Franklin College and has over 60 affiliated faculty members from almost every school and college at UGA. Its faculty conducts research and provides instruction, including study abroad and service-learning opportunities, to undergraduates as well as graduate students from diverse majors. The ASI offers an undergraduate certificate in African studies and an undergraduate minor in African studies. In addition, the Institute supports the minor in African languages and literatures and the program in African languages and cultures, both of which are housed in the department of comparative literature.

To further enhance its academic offerings, the ASI hosts and participates in several events throughout the year. These activities include: the Annual Darl Snyder Lecture on Africa; the weekly APERO Africana Lectures; State of the Art conferences and symposia; the Fall lecture and open house; the K-12 Teacher Seminar on Africa; the regional Southeast and the National Model African Union (SEMAU & NAMAU respectively); and the African Languages' Cultural Awareness events.

Scope and Content

The collection consists primarily of administrative files and correspondence documenting the African Studies Institute from 1996 to 2015. Most of the files date from the directorship of Lioba Moshi and the records demonstrate the growth of the ASI during these years.

Aside from administrative files, the collection also consists of student journals and photographs documenting their study abroad experience in Tanzania.

Organization and Arrangement

The collection consists of six series: 1. Correspondence, 2. Administrative Subject Files, 3. Study Abroad, 4. Financial, 5. Darl Snyder Lecture, and 6. Photographs.
