Since the terrorist attacks of 9/11, ‘terrorism’ has increasingly become a matter of political, public, and academic concern. Yet what exactly do we mean by ‘terrorism’, and how does it apply in an African context?
The African Studies Centre, within the School of Interdisciplinary Area Studies, acts as a focal point for graduate level work and faculty research on Africa. Alongside vibrant doctoral programmes, the MSc in African Studies, inaugurated in 2006, is already recognised as Europe's most prestigious and successful training programme in its field.
It’s been an exciting and memorable year for the African Studies Centre, with several staff publishing new books and the retirement of William Beinart from his role as the Rhodes Chair of Race Relations.
