Basler Afrika Bibliographien and ZASB, together with the University of Namibia, invite students and scholars working on Namibia to participate in the 9th Namibia Research Day.
The Namibia Research Day brings together graduate students and scholars of all levels and from all disciplines to share their research, experiences and expectations. It offers the possibility to discuss ongoing or recently completed research on Namibia in an interdisciplinary context. The Day also offers the possibility for common reflections on a variety of (practical) issues with which researchers in Namibia are faced with, such as archival and institutional possibilities and challenges or questions regarding academic cooperation. The Day takes place in a hybrid format; nevertheless, the organisers strongly encourage physical presence in Basel for participants based in Europe.
The Namibia Research Day explicitly addresses all disciplines, themes and topics. Interested participants are requested to send a research abstract/project summary (not more than one page) and let us know if interested in giving a brief presentation. The final programme of the Day will be communicated in early September.
The Namibia Research Day is jointly organised by the Basler Afrika Bibliographien (Namibia Research Centre & Southern Africa Library), the Centre for African Studies at the University of Basel, Switzerland, and the School of Humanities, Society and Development of the University of Namibia. Participation is free of charge.
