The Africa Research Forum 2023 - 7th March 2023

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in conference


What kind of doctoral research on, in and with Africa takes place at King’s? How do King’s students critically reflect on the benefits and challenges of research in the continent? The Africa Research Group hosts an annual PhD forum to answer these questions and more with a showcase of some of the latest doctoral work on Africa from across the College.

As part of Africa Week 2023, the event features presentations by King's College London students introducing their PhD research, followed by feedback from academic staff and questions and answers with the audience. This event is free and open to all.
