MIASA Female Academic Careers in Africa Workshop 2022 for early- and mid-career female academics

University of Ghana

Application Deadline: August 3rd, 2022

The Merian Institute for Advanced Studies in Africa (MIASA) invites applications for its workshop on Female Academic Careers in Africa which is organized from 7 to 9 September 2022 in collaboration with the German Historical Institute Paris (GHIP) and the Centre for Gender Studies and Advocacy (CEGENSA) at the University of Ghana (UG).

MIASA is based on a cooperation between UG and four German partners (the University of Freiburg, Goethe University Frankfurt, the German Institute for Global and Area Studies, and the GHIP). The institute is located at UG, Legon Campus. The institute is sponsored by the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) with co-funding from UG.

This will be the fifth edition of MIASA’s Female Academic Careers in Africa workshop series, but for the first time, it will be held entirely on Legon Campus in Accra. The first two workshops took place in Dakar (2018 and 2019), the third (2020) was organized virtually and the fourth (2021) in a hybrid format between Dakar, Bamako, Accra and virtual participants.

This workshop welcomes early- and mid-career female academics who are affiliated in the Social Sciences and Humanities with universities or research institutes in Africa. Applicants should have a PhD. We are open to a broad range of disciplines and appreciate, in particular, applicants who work on one or more of MIASA’s main research themes.
