Sudan Archive Visiting Library Fellowship

Applications are welcomed from doctoral students studying Sudan, South Sudan, or the wider East Africa region, whose research would be significantly supported by two months’ study of materials held in the Sudan Archive at Durham University. The Fellowship will commence in April 2018.

The Sudan Archive was founded in 1957, the year after Sudanese independence, to collect and preserve the papers of administrators from the Sudan Political Service, missionaries, sol diers, business men, doctors, agriculturalists, teachers and others who had served or lived in the Sudan (now Sudan and South Sudan) during the Anglo Egyptian Condominium (1898 – 1955). There is also a significant amount of Mahdist material , papers relating to the military campaigns of the 1880s and 1890s, and also the post – independence period up to the present day. The Archive holds substantial numbers of papers relating to Egypt and African states bordering on Sudan and South Sudan. Most of the material is in English, with a small amount in Arabic. A summary of the collection is available online at https://www.dur.ac.uk/library/asc/sudan .

The Fellowship entitles the holder to full access to departmental and other University facilities such as Computing and Information Services, the University Library, and of course the Sudan Archive. The Fellowship carries a modest grant of £300, but also includes accommodation and all meals for the duration of the Fellowship. The Fellow will reside at Grey College during the Easter term 23 April-22 June 2018. The Fellow will also be encouraged to participate with the activities of the university’s Centre for Contemporary African History https://centreforcontemporaryafricanhistory.com.

Applicants should send a CV (of no more than 2 pages) and a two to three-page outline of their proposed research. Applicants should also arrange at the same time for their academic supervisor to send (directly) an academic reference supporting their application. These submissions should preferably be made by e-mail, and must arrive by 17:00 GMT Friday 1 December 2017.

The Gordon Memorial College Trust Fund will cover the international travel costs of successful applicants who are citizens of Sudan/South Sudan and who are resident in Sudan, South Sudan or a neighbouring country.

SEMINAR – Syrians in Khartoum, by Alice Koumurian and Vivian Hartlief

CEDEJ Khartoum is pleased to organize a seminar on Sunday, May 7th, 2 pm, on Syrians in Khartoum by Alice Koumurian and Vivian Hartlief.

Alice Koumurian, Project officer in CEDEJ Khartoum, will present her research :

« Sudan: a Destination Country? The Case of Syrians Who Have Arrived After 2011 in Khartoum »

Summary :

Situated in the Horn of Africa, Sudan is at the heart of a particularly complex migration system. Sudan is affected by large influx of Eritrean, Ethiopian, Somali and South Sudanese migration flows. Furthermore, it is equally affected by large-scale internal displacements and therefore must face possible departure of its own citizens.

This study focuses on a particular group that recently augmented these flows: that of Syrians who have arrived in Sudan after 2011 and whose profile and aspirations still remain largely unknown. Since Sudan is one of the very few countries still granting them a visa-free entry into its territory, there has been an uninterrupted flow of Syrians to Sudan after the outbreak of the Syrian crisis in 2011.
