African Studies Centre events

Oxford University’s African Studies Centre is one of the world’s leading centres of African Studies. Though the history of the study of Africa in Oxford preceded the founding of the Centre in 2004, the Centre has since become the focal point for graduate level work and faculty research on Africa in Oxford.

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.

Members of the Centre are affiliated to and teach in other faculties/departments in the university including Politics and International Relations, Social and Cultural Anthropology and History.
