Chronic Conditions: Childhood and Social Suffering in Global Africa

The theme of the 2022 Global Humanities Institute (GHI) is Chronic Conditions: Childhood and Social Suffering in Global Africa. The overarching goal of this GHI is to offer new ways of thinking about the historical, cultural, spatial, and structural processes that have given rise to chronic health conditions among African and African-descended youth and children. This CHCI / Mellon Global Humanities Institute is a partnership between four universities: the University of Kansas (Lawrence, Kansas, USA), the University of Cheikh Anta Diop (Dakar, Senegal), the University of Dar es Salaam (Dar es Salaam, Tanzania) and the Federal University of Bahia (Salvador, Brazil).
