Congratulations to Dr. Sarah Katz-Lavigne for receiving an Insight Development Grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada!
Dr. Sarah Katz-Lavigne (University of Bayreuth) is a co-investigator with an interdisciplinary team to which the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) of Canada recently awarded an Insight Development Grant to examine whether Canadian visa policies constitute a barrier to research collaboration between Canada, especially Canadian universities, and Africa. The other investigators are Dr. Meredith Terretta (University of Ottawa), Dr. Abdoulaye Gueye (University of Ottawa), and Dr. Nadège Compaoré (University of Toronto).
See more information about this research project here. A preliminary report of findings of research on the topic by Dr. Katz-Lavigne and Dr. Terretta is available on the website of the Canadian Association of African Studies (CAAS) (of which Dr. Katz-Lavigne was part of the administration when she originally launched this research) here.
