Long abstract:
The panel will look at approaches for bridging the gap between university education and community development in Africa. It invites papers which look at practical ways of blending academic work with community development issues and gives examples of experiences of doing so. These papers could be about student fieldwork with communities, and community-based formulations of questions for studies to be done by university students (and staff). Papers can also be about research outcomes of research projects that studied community development, and ways of involvement of researchers and students.
