The Program of African Studies publishes a newsletter, PAS News and Events, during the fall, winter and spring quarters of each academic year. PAS News and Events reports on our new initiatives, current programs, conferences and other events taking place at PAS and Northwestern. It is a valuable resource for keeping students, faculty, colleagues, alumni and others within the Africanist community informed of activities at PAS.
