Ghana Studies Since the 1960s

Ato Quayson


This paper provides an overview of developments in studies of Ghana since the 1960s. While taking a broad historical overview, it pays particular attention to changes in the constitution of the field that started with the rise of student exchange visitors to the country from the United States and Europe in the early 1990s and the ways in which this has introduced a number of new themes, areas of study, and methodological emphases. The paper closes with an appeal to try to establish more systematic connections between studies of Ghana undertaken by scholars based in external institutions and those who work inside the country.
