This workshop is aimed at postgraduate students in all disciplines with research interests relating to Africa. The workshop will include presentations and group discussions around two main topics: Fieldwork in Africa and Studying Africa from a distance.
Fieldwork in Africa:
The morning session of the workshop will focus on fieldwork in Africa. We will explore the practicalities of preparing to undertake fieldwork in Africa, hear from speakers about their experiences of conducting fieldwork, and discuss how practical challenges can be overcome.
Studying Africa from a distance:
The afternoon session will consider different ways of researching Africa without visiting the continent. The country you are researching may not be accessible, or your research interests may mean that there is no expectation that you will undertake fieldwork. So how can we best understand Africa from a distance?
The workshop is open to all postgraduate students and the £10 participation fee will cover lunch and light refreshments.
