Environmental History of Africa

Program for the Study of the African Environment at BU

The Program for the Study of the African Environment (PSAE) is a unit of Boston University’s African Studies Center that promotes interdisciplinary research in the environmental history and human ecology of Africa.

Our goal is to develop a better understanding of the complexities of human interactions with the environment through the integration of research perspectives from the humanities, the social sciences, and the biological and earth sciences.

The PSAE seeks to integrate the study of the African environment into research and training programs, and to develop cooperative programs with colleagues and students in Africa and at Boston University.
