2018        11 MAY      SEMINAR

 

Presentation

This seminar will debate presentations from the three CAPSAHARA postdoctoral fellows. Focusing on their ongoing field research, this meeting will work as a tentative methodological platform that should guide future research and writing, after an extensive period of data collection in the western Saharan region. After a presentation by each of the three researchers (centred in Tindouf and Nouakchott), the CAPSAHARA Principal Investigator will open a debate that should highlight the project’s current main topics of research and the structure of future fieldwork. Significant inputs from the local academic community are expected to occur, during the open debate that follows the interventions by the CAPSAHARA team members.
