Our initial project has laid the foundations for ongoing research networks and partnerships – and our conference in March 2022 provided an important opportunity for participants to disseminate their research and share their ideas with a wide audience. With this new funding, we are looking forward to building on this success and creating further opportunities to advance researchers’ careers in social sciences in Nigeria and South Africa.

Dr Price has also been awarded a Letsema Visiting Research Fellowship at the Institute of Pan-African Thought and Conversation (IPATC) at the University of Johannesburg, which will take place over the summer of 2023. Alongside conducting new research, Dr Price will develop research and teaching partnerships and support the development of IPATC’s new Pan-African Women’s Studies Unit.
