Evenemang

Forum för Afrikastudier har, sedan invigningen i mars 2012, arrangerat eller medarrangerat 180 eveneman (seminarer, föreläsningar, panelsamtal, filmvisningar, workshops, symposier, konferenser), företrädesvis vid Uppsala universitet, men i allt större utsträckning vid samarbetsinstitutioner i Afrika. Sedan 2015 driver vi också ett projekt om hälsa, politik och kultur i Afrika för att utforska gränsytorna mellan samhällsvetenskap och humaniora, å ena sidan, och medicinska och farmaceutiska vetenskaper, å den andra. Vi leder också projekt i Mocambique om kommunal demokrati, välmående, och biokulturellt arv. I ett pågående projekt i Burkina Faso studerar vi sociopolitiska förändringar från perspektiv av lokala aktörer i kommuner. För mer info, läs 2018 års rapport här. På den här sidan finns information om kommande evenemang - eller också kan man följa oss på Facebook.

    12th SANORD Conference: 11-13 Sept. 2019

    12th Southern African - Nordic Centre (SANORD) 2019 Annual Scientific Conference

    Wednesday 11 September-Friday 13 September 2019

    This year’s theme; “Role of Higher Education in Forging Sustainable Livelihoods” was selected because of its alignment to the Strategic Development Goals (SDGs). It is an exciting time for SANORD as we continue to grow and adapt, remaining always adaptable, motivated and responsive to global priority issues in education, research and wellbeing. Africa is facing challenges and changes as we strive towards the achievement of SGDs. Sustainable livelihoods is therefore an interesting area in which to work, research and collaborate, and SANORD member institutions will continue to meet and bring inspired people together in forums like this to ensure that SANORD remains at the front of capacity development and research production.

    Forum for Africa Studies will have several participants in the Uppsala delegation, notably Sten Hagberg, and Véronique Simon. Other Uppsala-participants include Shepherd Urenje, SWEDESD, Peter Sundin, ISP, and Ulrica Ouline, International Office.

    Friday Seminar in Africa Studies: Sara Bylund on adolescents accessing sexual and reproductive health services in Tanzania

    Friday 27 September, 10.15-11.30, Room 3-2028, Engelska Parken.

     

    Tanzanian Health Professionals’ Perceptions of Barriers for Adolescents Accessing Sexual and Reproductive Health Services

    The presentation explores and tries to understand health professionals’ perceptions of barriers for adolescents accessing sexual and reproductive health services in Tanzania. It is based on semi-structured interviews with health professionals and community health workers within a national sexual and reproductive health programme in Arusha and Kilimanjaro region, Tanzania. The health professionals were found to struggle to navigate between cultural and traditional norms, current laws and political statements, as well as the current sexual and reproductive health programme they were a part of. The findings also showed that unfriendly attitudes among health professionals themselves, and a focus on diseases and pregnancy in service delivery, were perceived to influence the access to sexual and reproductive health services for adolescents. The findings highlights the importance for future researchers, policymakers and health programmes to consider the aspects of health professionals’ values and perceptions and explore the challenges between mixed messages in norms from cultural, political, religious, and external donors.

Fredagsforsk i Afrikastudier är vår regelbundna mötesplats för att diskutera forskningsresultat och nya idéer, som när arkeologen presenterade sin forskning i miljöarkeologi i Östafrika..

 

 

Forum för Afrikastudier anordnar 35-40 evenemang per år, från seminarier och workshops till offentliga föreläsningar och rundabordssamtal. I februai 2015 anordnades ett panelsamtal om afrofobi i Sverige i vilken bland andra demokratiminister Alice Bah Kuhnke och forskarna Oscar Pripp och Ylva Habel deltog.

 

Vi genomför workshops i afrikanska länder, som den om kommunal demokrati på forskningsinstitutet Point Sud i Bamako, Mali, i mars 2014, som ledde till en nyligen publicerad bok. Mer info, klicka på bilden.

 

Vi anordnar evenemang när Uppsala universitet gästas av framstående personer, som Mocambiques förre president Joaquim Chissano, här i sampråk med prorektor Anders Malmberg.
