This site is based at the Center for African Studies at the University of California at Berkeley. It was funded by a four year grant (2005-2009) from the Title VI International Research and Studies Program of the US Department of Education.
The project co-coordinators are Michael Kevane, Department of Economics, Santa Clara University, and Martha Saavedra, Center for African Studies, University of California, Berkeley. Mariane Ferme, Department of Anthropology, University of California, Berkeley was the principal investigator for the grant.
