10th Namibia Research Day
October 21 @ 09:00 - 19:00
We invite students and scholars working in and on Namibia to participate in the 10th Namibia Research Day.
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 reflection on a variety of (practical) issues researchers in Namibia are faced with, such as archival and institutional possibilities and challenges or questions regarding academic cooperation. The Day takes place in a hybrid format; nevertheless, we strongly encourage physical presence in Basel for participants based in Europe.
The 10th Namibia Research Day will divert from the previous Days and – apart from open panels – includes a workshop on “Namibian Studies – visions and expectations”.
The Namibia Research Day is jointly organised by the Basler Afrika Bibliographien (Namibia Resource Centre & Southern Africa Library), the Centre for African Studies at the University of Basel, Switzerland, and the School of Humanities, Society and Development of the University of Namibia. Participation is free of charge.
