African Studies Centre

Dr Tim Livsey

Departmental Lecturer in African History

I moved to the African Studies Centre in 2017 from a post at the Faculty of History. My current role is a joint appointment with the Faculty of History. I studied at Cambridge and Birkbeck, University of London; and previously have taught at Leeds Beckett University, King’s College London, and the London School of Economics. My research focuses on histories of decolonisation and development in West Africa, and I have particular interests in cultural and urban history.

Dr Julia Viebach

I joined the Centre in September 2018 as a Departmental Lecturer in African Studies. I have just finished a three-year Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship based in the Faculty of Law at University of Oxford. Previously I was a Development Career Lecturer and the Oxford Transitional Justice Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Oxford’s Centre for Criminology. I obtained my PhD in peace and conflict studies from the University of Marburg in Germany where I worked as a research fellow before coming to Oxford in 2013.
