The African Archives

In order to enrich the study of colonial systems, researchers at the Center for African Studies at Stanford University, the Department of History and Geography in Faculté des Sciences et Technologies de l'Education et de la Formation (FASTEF), Cheikh Anta Diop University (UCAD), and other faculty members and researchers are digitizing indigenous personnel records of the colonial administration in Senegal. Individual records in the National Archives of Senegal have received little attention in studies of the colonial system in Africa. The project seeks to digitize personnel records and dossiers and make these records available to researchers.

In the coming months, African Archives will be launching a virtual platform to display, browse, and search archival sources.
