Knowledge Production, Forms and Platforms

This key area addresses the following questions: What are the conditions for producing knowledge on Africa, and how do these affect the quality and outcomes of research? Who do we produce knowledge on Africa for? What does it mean to produce “postcolonial” knowledge on Africa? How can we engage with the asymmetries that continue to characterize African Studies, in which Northern institutions and researchers play a dominant role? How can our research inform broader public debates?
