8th Namibia Research Day
October 2 @ 08:00 - 17:00
Announcement of the 8th Namibia Research Day in Basel (Switzerland) and Windhoek (Namibia) Saturday 2nd October 2021.
The Namibia Research Day brings together graduate students and scholars of all levels and from all disciplines to share their research, experiences and expectations. It offers the possibility to discuss ongoing or recently completed research on Namibia in an interdisciplinary context. The Day also offers the possibility for common reflections on a variety of (practical) issues with which researchers in Namibia are faced with, such as archival and institutional possibilities and challenges or questions regarding academic cooperation. The Day will take place in a hybrid format allowing for physical and online participation).
The Namibia Research Day explicitly addresses all disciplines, themes and topics. Interested participants are requested to send a research abstract/project summary (not more than one page) and let us know if interested in giving a brief presentation. The final format and programme of the Day will be communicated at a later stage, depending on the number of participants and the disciplines represented as well as the actual Covid-19 situation.
The Namibia Research Day is jointly organised by the Basler Afrika Bibliographien (Namibia Research Centre & Southern Africa Library), the Centre for African Studies at the University of Basel, Switzerland, and the Department of Geography, History, Environmental Studies and Tourist Management of the University of Namibia. Participation is free of charge.
