What kind of doctoral research on, in and with Africa takes place at King’s? What are the benefits and challenges of research collaborations in the continent? The Africa Research Group (War Studies) joins together with researchers of the Dickson Poon School of Law, the Department of History, and the Department of Comparative Literature to answer these questions with a showcase of some of the latest doctoral work on Africa. The event will feature three presentations by KCL students introducing their PhD research, followed by a discussion of research collaboration in Africa between Nomfundo Ramalekana (University of Oxford) and Dr Tunde Ogowewo (KCL, Dickson Pool School of Law).
