Horn of Africa

Year of Funding: 

Our project focuses on building resources at UW about the Horn of Africa (Ethiopia, Eritrea, and Somalia) to serve the growing population of students from that region as well as the local community. This project will a) create a new course on African history b) organize several lectures on the Horn of Africa and c) collaborate on several arts and cultures initiatives outside of UW.
