This fund has been established in honour of the life and work of St Cross Fellow Jan-Georg Deutsch (1956 – 2016), who was Associate Professor of Commonwealth History at the University of Oxford. Georg was a founding member of the Global History Centre, and a passionate advocate of global approaches to historical scholarship, as well as an inspirational teacher and researcher in African history.
The Fund’s aim is to provide financial support for students in the field of African History or Global History from an African perspective – through both scholarships and support during times of hardship.
Donations toward this Fund will allow us to support exceptional students whilst remembering the life, work and scholarship of Jan-Georg. Gifts can be made online
