Academic Conferences & Lectures

The institute will host regional and international academic conferences to provide African Muslim and Christian scholars opportunities for scholarly exchange. We have already launched a monthly virtual lecture series in partnership with the Project on Religious Freedom and Society in Africa at the Yale MacMillan Center in New Haven. A highlight of the academic conferences will be the biannual academic lecture series in memory of Prof. Sanneh, the Yale Sanneh Lecture Series, in collaboration with Yale Divinity School. These lectures will feature accomplished Christian and Muslim scholars.
