The University of Kent School of History is currently welcoming applications for the Leverhulme Early Career Research Fellow scheme. The Centre for the History of Colonialisms has previously been very successful in this funding scheme — there are currently two Leverhulme ECRs associated with the centre. If you have a project related to colonialism and would like to apply, please check the advert or get in touch with any of the centre staff.
The Centre for the History of Colonialisms is delighted to welcome Temi Alanamu to the team. Temi is a Leverhulme Early Career Fellow and will be researching gender and memory amongst the post-colonial youth of Nigeria.
Welcome to Kent, Temi!
The Centre for the History of Colonialisms is delighted to welcome Andy Cohen to the team! Andy will be researching and teaching on the topics of African history, decolonisation, internationalisation and the economic history of colonialism.
Welcome to Kent, Andy!

After completing her PhD at ETH, Zurich, Dr Whyte has been a post-doctoral research fellow at the Bayreuth Academy of Advanced African Studies, working on a project analysing the connections between the origins of pan-Africanism and educational schemes in nineteenth-century Liberia and Sierra Leone.
