This mentorship and workshop programme brings together early career researchers in the humanities and social sciences from various African universities to develop their 'interdisciplinary voice'. Specifically how to write for, and with, international scholars working in other disciplines. It will be co-hosted by the Global Academy of Liberal Arts (GALA), an international community of 24 innovative and diverse universities from 17 countries dedicated to facilitating interdisciplinary collaboration in teaching and research. Working with the network's founders Bath Spa University, the African partners will co-organise a seven-month mentorship and a 3-day workshop to coincide with GALA's seventh annual conference, 'Liberal arts for the next generation', to be hosted by the Catholic University of Eastern Africa in Kenya in September 2020.
Workshop Team: Professor Ian Gadd, Bath Spa University; Professor Samuel Nyanchoga, Catholic University of Eastern Africa; Professor Nicole De Wet-Billings, University of the Witwatersrand; Professor Jairos Kangira, University of Namibia; Professor Zerihun Woldu, Addis Ababa University
