Centre of African Studies, University of Copenhagen (DK) asked me why I chose to do field work, and the short of the long answer is that it offers opportunities which are just so much more exciting than sitting at my desk on Amager.
I recommend the Master's programme, and I've been particular happy with the option during 3rd semester for field work. Read why here - where you'll also find a link to the visual side of field work - the Kigoma vibe! If you need a soundtrack with that, here's some Leka Dutigite to go with it here.
Deadline for applying is April 1 - check it out here.
