The Master Series gives master's students a community-based space for exploring new and creative ways of making, displaying and using academic research. On this platform, provided by Voice4Thought in collaboration with Leiden University, students are encouraged to share their visual and digital research projects, as well as discuss with peers and get new ideas for developing their research. If you are a master's student and are interested in developing an online research project related to your studies, you are welcome to get in touch and share your ideas!

Understanding the Congo Crisis

For this project, artist Sapin Makengele produced a large drawing of his vision on the Congo Crisis in co-creation with students from the Master course Negotiating Power in Africa (Leiden University) who designed a website with a historical analysis based on the artwork. The artwork shows various detailed storylines that are explored in further student assignments.

Researching Africa in the 21st century

Researching Africa in the 21st Century is a compulsory course in the MA African Studies at Leiden University. On these pages a selection of student papers from previous years is presented. Also, students who follow the current course will publish relevant articles and the result of their exercises and research proposals here.
