CISSR-AFIDEP 23-24 Research Residency for Junior Scholars
CISSR is launching an exciting new partnership with the African Institute for Development Policy – a pan-African research organization that maintains offices in Lilongwe, Malawi and Nairobi, Kenya. During the 2023-24 academic year, CISSR will host AFIDEP’s director and three junior scholars for 3-to-6-week mentored, writing residencies. The exchange program was designed by Jenny Trinitapoli (CISSR, Sociology), Nyovani Madise (AFIDEP, Social Statistics), and Francis Dodoo (AFIDEP, Demography) with the intentions of building research capacity and forging a long-term institutional collaboration. Generously funded by the University’s Global Provost for sub-Saharan Africa Grants and CISSR, these residential junior fellowships foster interdisciplinary and transnational collaboration among researchers working across the social sciences.
