Abstract:

Northwestern University's Program of African Studies, founded in 1948, was the first program on Africa in the nation and the first multidisciplinary program at Northwestern. Developed by anthropologist Melville J. Herskovits to train a corps of scholars maintaining African interests across disciplinary lines, the Program grew to include core and associated faculty from such diverse disciplines as African-American studies, art history, history and literature of religions, law, management, medicine, music, and technology, as well as anthropology, history, political science, and sociology.<lb/> The addition to the Records of the Program of African Studies fills thirty-one boxes and spans the period 1960-1981.

Historical Note

Northwestern University's Program of African Studies, founded in 1948, was the first program on Africa in the nation and the first multidisciplinary program at Northwestern. Developed by anthropologist Melville J. Herskovits to train a corps of scholars maintaining African interests across disciplinary lines, the Program grew to include core and associated faculty from such diverse disciplines as African-American studies, art history, history and literature of religions, law, management, medicine, music, and technology, as well as anthropology, history, political science, and sociology.

Following Herskovits' death in 1963, Gwendolen M. Carter, formerly of Smith College, became director of the Program in 1964. Assisted by Associate Director Ibrahim Abu-Lughod, Carter presided over considerable expansion of the Program and of African studies in general. At Carter's retirement in 1974, linguist Abraham Demoz became director, assisted by Assistant Director Fay A. Leary. In September 1980, political scientist John Paden became the director of the Program.

Founded with Carnegie Corporation funding, the Program has received support from a number of public and private sources outside the university, among them the Ford Foundation, the Office of Education, and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Private benefactors have also been cultivated. Numerous special projects and seminars have been conducted by the Program, including a Ford Foundation funded project to study factors affecting national unity; summer institutes in Ghana and Ethiopia; Office of Education sponsored seminars for high school teachers; and a project, also sponsored by the Office of Education, to design curriculum for a basic course in African Studies.

African languages, which were not stressed in the Program's early years, became a major part of the curriculum in 1964 with the establishment of the Department of African Languages (later the Department of Linguistics). Supported by Office of Education Language and Area grants, this department has offered training in a wide range of African languages, including, at various times, Yoruba, Twi, Swahili, Hausa, Amharic, Akan, and Arabic.

The Program has long maintained close contact with Africa and with Africanists from around the world. Visiting professors and lecturers are traditional, the Monday Night Lecture Series, one of the Program's oldest activities, draws both the Northwestern community and the general public to hear prominent Africanists. In addition, the Program strongly encourages both students and faculty to do field work in Africa, often supporting such research with various fellowships and grants.

Administrative Information

Acquisition Information

Most of the Program of African Studies Records were transferred to the Melville J. Herskovits Library of African Studies from the Program offices around 1974. Additional material was added after being separated from the Herskovits and Carter Papers. <emph render="bold">Addition</emph> The Program of African Studies records were transferred to the University Archives in three separate accessions. The bulk of the records, consisting of forty-eight archival boxes, were received on June 10, 1985 from the Program of African Studies via Hans Panofsky, Curator of the Melville J. Herskovits Library of African Studies (Accession #83-160). The two other accessions were received on November 9, 1983 (Accession #83-160) and February 2, 1984 (Accession #84-27) and were comprised of five archival boxes and two folders, respectively. Both were transferred to the University Archives by the Herskovits Library. <emph render="bold">Addition 2</emph> The addition to the Records of the Program of African Studies were transferred to the University Archives by the Africana Library on November 9, 1983, as Accession # 83-160.
