Not one guest, but three on our latest episode! Rachel speaks with Grace Adeniyi-Ogunyankin, Francis Nyamnjoh, and George Ofosu about postcolonial theory, decolonization of the university, and knowledge generation. All three have contributed to the Oxford Encyclopedia of African Politics, and we have access for our listeners to the chapters of our guests.
We keep it brief in this week’s news wrap, but for all our listeners who are early-career researchers on African politics, apply now for the Research Development Group, coordinated by the African Politics Conference Group and the American Political Science Association. Kim also shares great Twitter threads by Judicaelle Irakoze, and we talk about Africa Podcast Day.
