Abstract:The fundamental crisis facing African Studies is the danger of the creation of two separate and compartmentalized worlds of Africanists: African and non-African. This is a matter not only of increasing mutual isolation but also of disparity of resources. The author discusses the crisis in African Studies and asks how, in the context of its central role in the development of African Studies over the past sixty years, the International African Institute can help solve what is nothing less than a crisis of identity within the Africanist conmunity.
