Africa Week is part of Africa at King’s programme and is co-organised by the African Leadership Centre, School of Global Affairs and Africa Research Group in the War Studies Department in collaboration with the Global Health Institute, Department of Culture Media and Creative Industries, Department of Digital Humanities, Law School, Department of History, School of Education, Communication and Society, King’s Libraries, PluS Alliance, Africa Leadership Centre Radio, King’s Food and King’s College London Choir.
The aim of King’s Africa Week is two-fold: to showcase the work of various Departments, Units and academics that engage in research, education and outreach activities relating to Africa; and to facilitate interaction between academics across King’s Faculties working on Africa and African policy practitioners as well as experts from partner institutions. Africa Week will showcase research projects and activities, as well as education and impact activities that relate to King’s partnerships with Africa-based higher education, policy and practice institutions.
Events during the week of 11-15 November, will focus on film, literature, leadership, education, health, engineering, health and economics with expert voices, special guests, students and alumni. It will be an opportunity for King’s community to experience different aspects of King’s engagement with Africa.
