UTA-Do African Cities workshop is a weeklong program aimed at urban scholars, activists, and artists. It includes lectures, interactive seminars, field visits, panels, spaces for collaborative and corporeal thinking and theorization, and, above all, efforts to create a community of urban scholars who proceed with an ethics of care and generosity.

In 2022 and 2023, the workshop took place in Nairobi, Kenya. In 2024, the workshop will take place in Dar es Salaam. Partners for the 2024 workshop include Ardhi University and the Just City Platform (FES-Tanzania). The program includes contributions from, among others, Gautam Bhan, Stefan Ouma, Wangui Kimari, Adam Bledsoe, Huda Tayob, Tatu Limbumba, and Youssuf Al Bulushi.

The event will be held in three venues: Ardhi University, FES-Tanzania, and the Goethe Institute.

"It is not an overstatement to say that the USF Fellowship was invaluable in relation to both my career development and the advancement of my research around urban politics. The USF Fellowship provided me with an opportunity to be part a diverse, open and stimulating academic milieu; to have the space and time to focus on research, and to pave the way for future academic research development."
