The Africa Multiple Cluster of Excellence at the University of Bayreuth (Germany) invites scholars working in the field of African Studies to apply for fellowships in the Bayreuth Academy of Advanced African Studies (BA).
Funded through the Excellence Strategy of Germany’s federal and state governments since 1st January 2019, the aim of the cluster is to reconfigure African Studies at the conceptual and the structural levels. The Cluster is conceived as a transformative space for the systematic study of African and African diasporic ways of life, enabling new forms of inter- and transdisciplinary cooperation. The BA was founded in 2012 as a space for engaged scholarship and debate in the study of Africa and is now part of the Africa Multiple Cluster.
In the academic year 2020-2021, the BA offers up to twenty short- and long-term fellowships. These are designed to enable scholars of African Studies to pursue projects significant to the Cluster’s theoretical and thematic agendas while immersed in a vibrant community of researchers from more than fifteen academic disciplines. Fellows will be in residence for periods ranging from one to six months, during which they will carry out their research in an efficiently managed environment with excellent working conditions.
