On 24 June 2013, the Department of African Studies and Anthropology sent its representative, Dr Kate Skinner, to accompany pro-Vice Chancellor Professor Michael Whitby to Ghana, West Africa. The purpose of the visit was to sign a Memorandum of Understanding between the University of Cape Coast and the University of Birmingham. This agreement facilitates exchanges of staff and students across a range of subjects at the two institutions.
Meanwhile, the University of Johannesburg, South Africa, has entered the U21 network, of which Birmingham is a member.
These are most welcome developments for everyone at the Department of African Studies and Anthropology, and should increase opportunities for study abroad, research collaboration and sharing of professional expertise.
