Departmental Lecturer / Evans Pritchard Fellow in African Anthropology
Dr. Thomas Hendriks is not available for DPhil supervision.
I joined the African Studies Centre in 2016-2017, where I am involved in the teaching of the MSc in African Studies. I am also appointed to the Institute of Social Anthropology where I teach and supervise graduate students. I was trained as an anthropologist at the KU Leuven University (Belgium) and my research emerges from long-term intensive fieldwork in the Democratic Republic of Congo. My ethnographic interests range from gender, sexuality and desire to labour, race and memory in both urban and rural settings. My theoretical work occurs at the crossroads of African anthropology, gender studies and queer theory.
