Research Themes

IFRA will prioritize support to the following research themes:

  • Workers, Labour, and Employment: This research area targets studies on workers in industries, in factories and on plantations in East Africa, focusing on working conditions, workers relations (considering gendered issues), workers/employers relations, organized protest or consent, the growth of a working class culture, entertainment and reading practices, political consciousness, etc. Both case-study approaches and comparative approaches are welcome.
  • Decolonizing Knowledge and Practices in the social sciences: this research theme is concerned with the contexts, conditions and actors of the production and use of knowledge in social sciences, philosophy and art in relation to (East) Africa; it will support studies on (East) African thinkers and intellectuals, including artists, to understand activism, epistemological renewal and critical thinking in and about (East) Africa.
  • Gender & LGBT in Words and in Practice: this theme concerns gendered identities in African postcolonial politics; it explores the construction and uses of gender in various settings; it notably wishes to focus on frictions between LGBT activists and the state, on places, sites and practices of gathering and identity construction, and on the interplay between global gendered identity and local conceptions and practices.

Beyond these priority research themes, IFRA aims to foster research in general in the East African region and grants may be given to non-priority project proposals when considered well-thought and relevant.
