The African History Project is gaining a reputation as a leading forum for the exploration of African political and intellectual histories and wider political thought.
Our ground breaking work, centred on facilitating pan-African explorations of Africa’s past, is attracting intrepid thinkers from communities all around the world. We are very proud that the African History Project counts among its students and knowledge seekers people from every continent and from all walks of life, from history enthusiasts, parents and educators, to university lecturers, journalists and policy makers.
Join us: Attend a Public Lecture
One of the reasons for this is our high quality public lectures. Through these unique and engaging conversations participants are guided to think critically about how we engage with Africa’s knowledge and the importance of such engagement to solving some of the issues facing the world today. Our lectures are dynamic and collaborative, yet academically rigorous, conveying key information and concepts to participants as well as introducing them to intellectual debates in African history.
The Art of Conversation
Our public lectures are not just about passive learning but are about conversations. Participants can join in, ask questions, and engage with the lecturer and other attendees. African tradition tells us that true learning is a collaborative affair and all of us have the potential to teach somebody something. This ethos is what fuels the open and encouraging learning culture we promote here at the African History Project.
Integrated with the Foundation Certificate
It is no understatement to say that our public lecture programme is ambitious and there isn’t a month that goes past in which there is not the opportunity to join in with a conversation. These lectures are fully integrated into our Foundation Certificate in African History, the flagship course of the African History Project, which makes it easy for students to transition onto the Foundation Certificate should they wish to do so in the future.
