NAI Guest Researcher Dialogues

Time • 5 Oct 2022 14:00 - 15:00

In Uppsala: NAI Guest Researcher Dialogues this week with African Guest Researchers’ Scholarship Holder Dr. Peace Musiimenta (Makerere University) and Dr. Viola Nilah Nyakato.

During the dialogue, we will listen to Dr. Peace Musiimenta (Makerere University) and Dr. Viola Nilah Nyakato (Senior Researcher, NAI) engage in new research from Musiimenta's project on "Masculinities revisited: change, continuities and fractures in Western Uganda". We will explore men's experiences and lamentations on shifting masculinities among Bakiga in Western Uganda. Particularly how men and boys experience and manage social changes that define ideal forms of masculinities.

Fika will be served downstairs in the NAI Library after the event.

The dialogue series is organised by Pax et Bellum and Uppsala Peace and Development Students' Association (UPaD), in collaboration with the Nordic Africa Institute (NAI). No membership required and the event is open to the public.
