Academic Careers and Research Culture in Africa

Submitted by AFAM on Tue, 11/21/2023 - 9:08pm

Dear AFAM Family,

While the number of PhD faculty in African institutions has been steadily increasing, institutional systems and cultures have been slow to change and very few offer meaningful support for the kind of research needed for successful academic careers. What does this mean for African scholars? How do they balance career ambitions and institutional priorities? What strategies can professors at any career stage use to advance their research agendas and, at the same time, contribute to transforming their institutions? How can schools both inside and outside of Africa work together to improve the research culture at African institutions? This webinar will address these and other questions.
