Società italiana per lo studio della storia contemporanea


Annalisa Urbano


I hold a Degree in Contemporary History from the University of Bologna, a MSc and a PhD in African Studies from the University of Edinburgh. Between 2013 and 2017, I was a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Bayreuth Academy for Advanced African Studies. In 2015, I was a Visiting Fellow at the Department of History and Civilization at the European University Institute in Florence and, in 2017, a Teaching Fellow at the University of Edinburgh. Currently, I am a Researcher at the University of Geneva, working on the SNSF-financed project ‘Decolonization as regional experience and global trend: understanding a global phenomenon through processes from West African, 1950-1977’.
