Having spent ten years in the Department of History at the University of Ghana, most recently as Senior Lecturer, I am now a Visiting Senior Research Associate with the University of Bristol's Centre for Black Humanities. I am Founding Curator of the Adu Boahen Memorial Library and Archive (University of Ghana) and I continue to be based in Accra. My research interests focus on Ghanaian-British relations in the 19th and 20th centuries with specialisms in Anglo-Fante society and the history of GBC. I am proud to be a life-member of the Ghana Studies Assciation and to contribute to the future of GSA's journal as it's editor. Thank you for your interest in Ghana Studies.

I am a Senior Lecturer in the Department of History, University of Ghana, Legon. I specialize in 18th to 21st century social history of West Africa, with particular reference to Ghana, labor and social movements. I am also a creative writer. In my time with Ghana Studies as an editor, I hope to maintain the journal’s respectable image and solid foundation. Thank you for supporting us and the journal.
