The African Studies Centre has been a privileged institutional form in Britain for knowledge production on Africa since the end of colonialism. This talk argues that the origin of these UK centres should be located in the colonial research institutes established in Africa, in particular the Rhodes-Livingstone Institute and the East African Institute of Social Research. Attention to the knowledge about Africa that was deemed authoritative by these institutes as well as to the institutions and structures underpinning that knowledge production can raise important questions about today’s centres that need to beaddressed as part of a decolonization agenda.

This talk is part of the Centre of African Studies Lent Seminar Series series.
