A-Z LECTURES and CATEGORIES

Africa

'We plan to champion the African thought leadership through talks, debates, conferences and broadcasts from a wide range of sectors including health, environment, technology, culture, politics and business. We want to be a hub for exchanging and developing ideas, and providing a distinctly African perspective on the world.'

'Apart from hosting and working with regional study groups and running frequent workshops and conferences to disseminate research findings and publicise topical issues, the Centre runs a weekly seminar on Thursdays where scholars and postdoctoral researchers in Oxford and from different parts of the world present their work. The Centre also regularly hosts prominent African statesmen, leaders, entrepreneurs, social activists, intellectuals, thinkers, scholars, writers, artistes, and others who are interested in Africa and African affairs.'

'Our Centre began in 1964 as the African Studies Unit, and has grown from a small cataloguing enterprise to a research centre with an annual African Studies Lecture, a regular seminar programme and an annual African Studies Bulletin.'

'The Centre’s primary role in the University is to undertake, promote, and support research and teaching about Africa as well as to build academic engagement with African scholars and institutions. Among the ways we do this is through intensive and dynamic seminar series, workshops, public lectures, and conferences.'

'The largest centre of expertise on Africa outside Africa. Founded in 1965 at SOAS, University of London, where its administration is still based, since 1991 the Centre has assumed formal responsibility for co-ordinating, stimulating and promoting interdisciplinary study, research and discussion on Africa within the University; and promoting a wider awareness of African issues.'

'We are a membership organisation that provides opportunities for people to connect, celebrate and engage critically with a wide range of topics and ideas about Africa today. Through our events, publications and digital channels we share insight, instigate debate and facilitate mutual understanding between the UK and Africa.'

'The leading Higher Education institution in Europe specialising in the study of Asia, Africa and the Near and Middle East ... With our vast repository of knowledge and expertise on our specialist regions, we are uniquely placed to inform and shape current thinking about the economic, political, cultural, security and religious challenges of our world.'
