The University of Western Australia is launching a new Africa Research Cluster on international Africa Day, Monday 25 May 2015, from 5.30-7.30pm.
The interdisciplinary Cluster aims to develop, coordinate and promote UWA research and research collaborations on important Africa-related themes, and will also develop a program of public engagement events. Further information on the Cluster can be found here: http://www.arts.uwa.edu.au/research/clusters/Africa_Research
The launch will feature a free public lecture by recently-arrived UWA Centenary Winthrop Professor of Rural Development Petra Tschakert on ‘Understanding structural vulnerability to climate change in Africa’, followed by an informal reception and networking.
