Research & Teaching


Trained as a historian, philosopher and political scientist, my research interests are interdisciplinary, intersecting between Political Science, History and Philosophy. With advanced degrees in these fields, my research and teaching are divided into  four  sections: (a) History (African history and its engagement with indigenous societies, cultures, civic movements, nationalism and social change. Also, African Theory of History and Historiography ); (b) Philosophy (African Philosophy, Critical Race Theory, Africana Intellectual History, The Black Atlantic). (c) Political Science ( Political Theory, African Political Economy, Postcolonial African Studies), (d) Cultural Studies (Intercultural Communication, Global Cultures, Global Identity Experience, Oral Communication in English).
