South Africa & University of Cape Town, 2015

I am currently in the process of completing my MA by dissertation at the Wits Institute for Social and Economic Research. My thesis focuses on the use of fire, in both a symbolic and physical sense as a method of protest in the South African student movement of 2015/2016. I plan to complete my MA by March 2017. I am also in contributing towards a book contracted by the Human Science Research Council of which I am a co-author. The book focuses on issues of moral restitution and social justice in Nigeria, Cameroon, Sierra Leone and South Africa. I will be presenting my work on this at Harvard in December 2016.
