The Faculty of Humanities’ Internationalisation Working Group is running an Sub-Saharan Africa Country and Region Group, Chaired by Professor Tim Insoll and to which all staff within Humanities with an interest in Africa would be welcome. Lunch will be provided.
The aims and objectives of these groups are as follows:
1.To bring together academic and PSS colleagues with a commitment to a particular country, whether for teaching, research, social responsibility, business engagement, or recruitment purposes.
2.To support the sharing of knowledge between colleagues in order to foster informed engagements with the particular country.
3.To make that knowledge (including, where appropriate, contacts and links) available to the wider faculty community to help expand or improve our work with that particular country.
1.To collate information on current international relations.
2.To identify opportunities for consolidating, developing, and expanding current international relations, with particular attention to 2+2 and other collaborative partnership opportunities.
3.To identify a select group of potential partners on which to focus our energies.
4.To collect information on the reputation of The University of Manchester and in particular the Faculty of Humanities in our target countries.
5.To identify UK and US competitors to our relations with our target international partners.
6.To identify priority areas where the Faculty of Humanities will make most impact and where this focus will make greatest contribution to faculty priorities in recruitment, research or social responsibility.
