Pooling their expertise in the field of African research in the African Studies Rhine-Main alliance are Goethe University Frankfurt, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU) and TU Darmstadt. The work of the alliance is particularly characterized by its interdisciplinary nature. Not just the disciplines of Anthropology and African Studies are involved; Egyptology, Linguistics and Literature Studies, Geography, Botany and Economics - among other subject areas - are also participating. The pivotal institute that serves the African Studies Rhine-Main alliance that was formed in May 2016 is the Centre for Interdisciplinary African Studies in Frankfurt, at which many of the various aspects of the project are coordinated.
