Abstract

"Africa research in Austria is multifaceted, multidisciplinary and multilocal. Besides the continuous output of many scholars, this is also shown by the activities
of the research group "African Studies at Austrian Universities", established in 2013. The book Africa Research in Austria: Approaches and Perspectives is a product of this fruitful engagement. The collection assembles contributions
to the second workshop of the research group, which was held in Innsbruck, 19-20 March 2015. The topics covered span from pan-Africanism and popular culture, the use of research films in African studies, and reflections on the
Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie to students' exchange between Tanzania and the two German states, the role of the UN in the Congo Crisis, and post-colonial conflicts and limited access orders in Africa. It contains contributions by Eric Burton (Vienna), Birgit Englert (Vienna), Andreas Exenberger (Innsbruck), Maximilian Feldner (Graz), Thomas Lechner (Graz), Silvia Lercher (Innsbruck), Ulrich Pallua (Innsbruck), Arno Sonderegger (Vienna) and Thomas
Spielbüchler (Linz)."
