Example staff list

This is an example of how a staff listing control works. It has been set up to show the staff in a particular department and the "Display format" option set to "Flow". There are alternative options to create bulleted lists or staff lists in tablular format. You can also filter for areas such as research activity, facility, keyword or job type.

This feature can be found in the "staff" folder in site elements.

Senior Honorary Research Fellow

Department of African Studies and Anthropology

Research and teaching in the interdisciplinary environment that is the Department of African Studies and Anthropology has been one of the most rewarding and challenging phases in my life: rewarding as this kind of work pushes me to join up the dots, to make connections across disciplines and sets of ideas, and challenging because this kind of fluidity and opportunity is a square peg in the round ...

I am also an ...
