There are a wide range of postgraduates studying and researching African Studies at the University of Leeds. This page will try to profile some of them and their research, and so is something of a work in progress. If you are a postgraduate student researching Africa or the African diaspora at Leeds and would like to be added to the list of researchers below please contact us at – and also feel free to get in touch with Brendan Lawson, the current LUCAS Postgraduate Representative. We are in the process of establishing regular formal and informal meet ups and seminars to discuss research and other issues – please contact Brendan for more information. There is now also a facebook page for LUCAS
