African Studies

Research in African Studies

African Studies is devoted to facilitating a deeper understanding and engagement with Africa for the Wesleyan Community and beyond. 

African Studies researchers produce and read:

  • Secondary literature/Peer reviewed journal articles - typically provide either a detailed critique of a narrow, focused topic or question; or a short summary of a broader idea
  • Books - offer extended original presentations of, or critical analyses on a topic
  • Primary Sources - direct, uninterpreted records of the subject of your research project
  • Websites -  can enhance your knowledge providing you look at them through a critical eye understanding the reason for their existence. 
  • Newspapers - keep up with current events as they happen or read how a historic event was reported
