Africanizing Europe: Decolonization and Higher Education in England, France and Ireland, 1957-1973

What was the significance of European universities in the decolonisation of Africa and the agency of African students in postcolonial Europe? The interplay of decolonisation and the Cold War led to international academic exchange programmes designed to educate African elites. The project examined the influence of mobile students on European universities through their negotiations of belonging and difference.
