This Round Table event brings together representatives of the African Cluster Centres and Bayreuth-based scholars into a first exchange of ideas on this fundamental objective of the Cluster of Excellence. What do we mean by Reconfiguring African Studies? Which expected outcome would advance scholarship in the fields in which we are involved? How do we train and research on African Studies through cooperation and internationalization of university and higher education? Expectations may vary significantly, as seen through the lenses of the different disciplines represented in the Cluster, as they probably diverge according to the partner institutions participating in it. These multiple ideas and perspectives are intended to be addressed and discussed among the participants of the panel and the attendants are invited to engage in an open and fruitful debate.
