The Institute of African Studies at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies (IAS-HUFS) founded in 1977, is a leading research center concerning African studies in Korea. The institute’s academic interest is comprehensive and covering a wide range of academ ic disciplines on African studies: from linguistics and literature, history and anthropology, to political science and developmental studies. IAS-HUFS has undertaken a 10 year project (2000-2010) on ‘cultural contact and creolization’ in Africa. As the project is due to over, IAS-HUFS is planning to start a consecutive project.
For the last 10 years, IAS-HUFS has been working as a hub to foster cooperative academic networks among Asian Africanists and institutes. The international partnership of IAS-HUFS had thitherto been skewed, as the main routes of academic exchange were centered on Western scholarship. Thus the institute attempted to find an alternative and complementary way of achieving international cooperation and this is the second logic of networking among Asian countries. The institute has facilitated the network for consolidating academic activities and partnership.
