Collaborative Research Group African History

The aim of the Collaborative Research Group African History is to organise Africanist historians in Europe, to enhance the visibility of African history within the larger field of African Studies and that of history in Europe, and to promote the development of African history as a discipline within the larger domain of humanities and social sciences. It is an explicit aim to enhance the profile of African History within AEGIS. In order to reach any of these goals, the membership/participation in CRG-AH is open to both institutional and individual membership/participation of Africanist historians working within or outside AEGIS member institutes.
