Dr Thomas Hendriks
Departmental Lecturer / Evans Pritchard Fellow in African Anthropology

I joined the African Studies Centre in 2016-2017, where I am involved in the teaching of the MSc in African Studies. I am also appointed to the Institute of Social Anthropology where I teach and supervise graduate students. I was trained as an anthropologist at the KU Leuven University (Belgium) and my research emerges from long-term intensive fieldwork in the Democratic Republic of Congo. My ethnographic interests range from gender, sexuality and desire to labour, race and memory in both urban and rural settings.
