The power of whose voice you listen to

Drilling down on engaged scholarship with Dr Sibanda

On the subject of engaged scholarship, Catherine Sofianos sat down with Princess Sibanda to talk about the social justice dimensions and impact of her PhD findings.

Dr Sibanda used popular participation theatre to learn from the voices of sex workers.

African sex workers are always seen as female victims,” explains Dr Princess Alice Sibanda, “but what I found is that they have a lot of agency, most of them are men and some of the most successful are trans.”

Dr Princess Sibanda will be the first post-doctoral Marie Jahoda Fellow at Ruhr-Universität Bochum in the winter term 23/24.
