This workshop offers scholars and graduate students who work on the region an opportunity to exchange across disciplines and research areas. It will take place on 18 March 2022. The deadline for submission is 31 December 2021.

The “Regional Research Day: Horn of Africa” offers scholars at the University of Basel and associated institutions an opportunity to exchange across disciplines and research areas. Researchers and graduate students from all disciplines and at all stages in their academic career who work on the region (including Eritrea, Ethiopia, Djibouti and Somalia) are invited to present current research and academic activities. The aims of the regional day are:

  • to exchange on current research activities
  • to reflect research practices and modes of collaboration, and
  • to create new opportunities for collaboration.

The “Regional Research Day: Horn of Africa” will take place on Friday, 18 March 2022, in hybrid format (on-site in Basel and online via Zoom).

We invite scholars and graduate students to present their current research and academic activities. Please submit the title and a short abstract (max. half a page) to natalie.tarr@swisstph.ch by 31 January 2022 (extended deadline).
