The Trepidations of an African PhD Researcher
The Trepidations of an African PhD Researcher – Who Are You and Why Are You Here?
Atenchong Talleh Nkobou, School of Agriculture, Policy and Development
This paper contributes to research that has a predominant focus on western researchers in the global South. Firstly, the paper examines how my African identity fits into a western discourse of being a researcher and their intersections with my other personalities as I world-travel. Secondly, the paper elaborates on violence and intimidation in the field and how researchers may succeed or fail in negotiating such risks.
Presentation, followed by commentary and Q& A with discussants, Dr. Yaw Adjei-Amoako and Dr. Vevila Dornelles
