“Research Explorations” documents my journey as a PhD student of Anthropology as I move between the “field” and “home” (which for me is less geographically-based than relational/pragmatic). This space will largely focus on reflections/outputs/inputs/insights as I study technology for development narratives about “Africa”, and look at the role of “objective” research in circulations of capital and power on the African continent. All the while, I will necessarily be reflecting on global identity politics and contradictions inherent in research (including my own!) while attempting to also move beyond critique to explore more inclusive processes of knowledge production.
