Description

YOUTH AND EXPERIENCE - From Generation to Generation in Zimbabwe and the Diaspora

Britain Zimbabwe Society 2018 Research Day

What is the day about?

As Zimbabwe adjusts to its post-Mugabe world, 'Youth and Experience - From Generation to Generation in Zimbabwe and the Diaspora' will explore relations between the generations and the role of young people in promoting change. Within Zimbabwe, next generation voices are asserting greater agency across the social economy, development, culture, politics and academia and the media, and helping to drive technological innovation, futures and futurism.

The 2018 Britain Zimbabwe Society Research Day will also pay attention to the older generation, whose wealth of experience can help to illuminate comparative approaches, and to young Zimbabweans in the diaspora.

This day event, the latest in the well-established BZS Research Day series, will be inclusive and inter-disciplinary, while inviting contrasting perspectives and critical debate. It is a major forum where presenters can share experiences, original research and fresh thinking with a knowledgeable and supportive audience and those new to Zimbabwe.

Whatever your background and particular interest, we welcome you to 'Youth and Experience'.
