African Studies Association event honoring Joel Barkan this weekend

The African Studies Association annual meeting is beginning in Indianapolis and an eminent panel Saturday will recognize Joel’s impact. Being a “Kenya junkie” is not the same for me without him and I wish I could be at the ASA for the appreciation of his legacy.
