What if African Studies was the way you imagine it to be? Listen now to the first contribution by Anne Storch from Cologne University. We hope that this is the first podcast to a diverse series that features contributions by RecAf members answering to the 'What if?' question, featuring utopian visions of African Studies, alternative imaginations of the field and its academic and mundane life realities.
