Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

My study investigates the heritage politics surrounding the Ovambo female initiation rite (Olufuko) in North Namibia. The study gives insight in heritage politics and investigates the attitudes, and agendas of various actors in the Namibian heritage-formation scene. The project consists of a case study at the interface of Religious Studies and African Studies.
