NWO Veni grant for Anne-Isabelle Richard
Dr. Anne-Isabelle Richard has received a Veni grant for her research project ‘Eurafrica, African Perspectives, 1918-1970s’. The project will examine the relationship between Africa and Europe from an African perspective.
The relationship between Africa and Europe has been shaped in many ways. One of these is Eurafrica, which suggests that Europe and Africa are complementary continents and depend on each other. Eurafrica has always been examined from a European perspective. This project will examine what Africans thought about Eurafrica and how they used it for their own purposes. The project will focus on Senegal and Ghana as regional hubs with contrasting attitudes to Eurafrica.
