The dominance of non-African scholars in African Studies is well-documented, which raises questions such as: Why is there a lack of African scholars represented within the field of African studies? Where are the established and celebrated African scholars in this interdisciplinary field?
This afternoon seminar will be dedicated to discussing these questions and more by elevating African voices and agency and thus furthering current debates about decolonising African and other universities across the globe.
