Welcome to the Institute of African Studies at Carleton University

Welcome to the Institute of African Studies at Carleton University (also known as IAS)! Whether you are a new or returning student, I would like to extend a special welcome. This fall is going to be an unusual one for all of us, but please know that this is not going to stop us doing what we usually do: building community, getting to know our students, and providing a strong interdisciplinary base for the study of Africa, from history to politics, from music to film.

While we may not meet in person (yet), please don’t hesitate to reach out. The Institute administrators extraordinaires – June and Femi – and myself, would be happy to meet with you virtually, via email or by phone. My email address is Christine.duff@carleton.ca. June and Femi can be reached at africanstudies@carleton.ca. Remember, no question is too small! We are here to help.

I wish each and every one of you a healthy and successful academic year. I look forward to meeting you in person. Keep an eye on your Carleton email for announcements and events from the Institute. Take care everyone.

O daabo! Bye for now,

Christine Duff, Ph.D.
Director, Institute of African Studies
Associate Professor, Department of French
