Dr Thomas Hendriks

Thomas Hendriks

Departmental Lecturer/Evans Pritchard Lecturer in African Anthropology

I joined the Institute of Social and Cultural Anthropology in 2016-2017 where I supervise and teach graduate students. I am also appointed to the African Studies Centre, where I am involved in the teaching of the MSc in African Studies. 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.
