CSU Professors Launch Africa’s First Humanities App

Two history professors from Cleveland State University are helping to put a corner of an equatorial African nation on the digital map.

AfricaMark Souther, Ph.D., and Meshack Owino, Ph.D., spent 10 days in January in Kenya’s third largest city, Kisumu, located on the shores of Lake Victoria.

There, they met with officials from Maseno University, their partners in a joint venture to create a cutting-edge app showcasing historical and cultural sites in Kisumu and the surrounding area. The ambitious project is funded by a $60,000 start-up grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
