Why is it that multi-national and other companies operating in Africa do not fund archaeological research by Africans in Africa but do so via researchers and centres in places such as London, New York or Paris?
How might African and diasporic archaeologists build strong relationships with private funders or African governments to grow an archaeology that is locally responsive but globally oriented?
This globinar will explore the state of African archaeology on the continent and in the diaspora focussing on the pertinent issue of funding and the role of professional associations, higher education institutions, NGOs and museums in growing the discipline.
These globinars are run by AfOx and hosted in partnership with TORCH Oxford, St Cross College, Oxford’s School of Archaeology, University of Cambridge, University of Cape Town, Great Zimbabwe University, Pan African Congress for Prehistory and Related Studies, Society for Black Archaeologists, Society for Africanist Archaeologists, SAPIENS, and Wenner Gren Foundation.
