Mobile Africa Revisited

Last year I headed over to the African Studies Centre at the University of Leiden, in the Netherlands, for the final conference of the Mobile Africa Revisited project. I talked about my experiences of developing a display about mobile phones in Cameroon that will appear in a new gallery in the Science Museum this autumn.

The video of my talk has recently been uploaded – it’s an academic discussion, but as I’m not an africanist, and my audience weren’t museum specialists, I aimed to offer a broad and accessible introduction to my thought processes as a curator.
