 QUALIFICATIONS

PhD, Hull University

bullet

Thesis title: Gender and Social Development in Francophone Africa - Realities and Fictions

MPhil, Department of Politics, University of Bath.

bullet

Thesis title: The Politics of Social Policy - Health and Old Age Policies  in France in the 1970s.

BA Hons. in French and Politics, Warwick University.

In-service traineeship, Commission of the European Communities, Brussels.

 

INTERESTS

Research in Francophone African Studies.

 

bullet

I have recently completed a book on gender and social development in francophone Africa. The study analyses the discourse and debate surrounding the formulation of social development policy targeting women in the developing world with particular reference to the French speaking region of West Africa.  The study evaluates gender and social development discourse at the international level (within the UN policy-making arena), at the regional level (within Africa) and at the national level (with particular reference to Senegal and Gabon). The analysis departs from traditional studies in this field by including alternative discourses of development from the literary and cultural worlds in West Africa.  The work brings together multiple perspectives to illuminate the mosaic of realities of social change in francophone Africa.

 

TEACHING

bullet

I teach a final year module on the political history of French-speaking world focusing on the processes of colonisation and decolonisation, and on French-speaking Africa in the post-colonial era.

bullet

My teaching also includes a section on African women’s writing in French for the module Modern Women Writers, and I teach French Decolonisation on the European Studies programme.

 

PROJECTS

bullet

I am currently directing an archive project for the translation and the conservation in electronic formats of rare colonial documents from the Senegalese National Archives. The project assembles particularly documents related to African women and girls living under French colonial rule. 

The documents are available on open-access for consultation at www.hull.ac.uk/savineau
