Dr Chris Low
After an Oxford DPhil on ‘Khoisan Healing’ (2004), I joined the African Studies Centre in 2005 as an ESRC Research Fellow. I have subsequently held a further Welcome Research Fellowship at the Centre and assisted in the Centre’s wider teaching and research for a number of years. I am currently setting up a new museum with southern African Bushmen (San) at !Khwa ttu, near Cape Town (www.khwattu.org) . In this project I am working closely with Dr Chris Morton of the Pitt Rivers Museum. I am also a Bath Spa University Research Fellow on an AHRC project concerning history and environment in north west Namiba (www.futurepasts.net) .
