University of Lubumbashi, DRC
A 'Comparing the Copperbelt' project workshop held in association with the University of Lubumbashi, Democratic Republic of Congo
This workshop, building on a successful event held in Zambia in July 2018, is organised in association with the University of Lubumbashi and will take place at the university. The workshop brings together researchers on and in the Copperbelt region to share ideas on social, environmental and cultural history. Research papers will come from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds (history, anthropology, economics, etc.), approaches and regional focuses, bringing together academics, cultural practitioners and social movements to discuss the region’s shared histories.
