Welcome to the new blog of the Francophone Africa research cluster at the University of Portsmouth

We are delighted to bring to you a new blog all about teaching and researching Francophone Africa.

This new website, launched on Monday 22 September 2014, aims to share the activities of the Francophone Africa research cluster at the University of Portsmouth. It will include blog posts by our members on their current research projects, as well as wider comment and analysis on the history, culture and language of both metropolitan France and other Francophone countries and regions of the world. There will be regular features exploring in more detail the undergraduate and postgraduate teaching on Francophone Africa that we carry out at the University of Portsmouth, with contributions from our current and past students. The blog will offer information and comment on recent and forthcoming events related to the study of Francophone Africa, and will also act as a repository for resources, particularly those in digital form, which we hope will be of use to students and scholars alike.

New blog posts will be coming very soon… In the meantime, we hope you enjoy exploring our new website and finding out more about the Francophone Africa research cluster at the University of Portsmouth, our members and our events.

We warmly welcome your comments and contributions, via email (francophone@port.ac.uk) or twitter (@UoP_Francophone).
