Prof. Wale Adebanwi

Director of the African Studies Centre

Rhodes Professor of Race Relations

I joined the African Studies Centere in July 2017. I am a political scinetist and anthropologist. My research and teaching have focussed on the processes of the social mobilisation of interests and power, particularly as these manifest in and through ethnicity, nationalism, race and racialisation, culture, democratic politics and social thought. I have two doctoral degrees from the University of Ibadan (Nigeria) and Cambridge (UK) - the latter as a Bill and Melinda Gates Scholar - and have taught at universities in Nigeria and the United States.
