Abstract

In his inaugural lecture, Kenny will explore his initial interests in research, which started with food production and supply in Tanzania, where the country experimented with a distinctly African form of development under the initial presidency of Julius ‘Mwalimu’ Nyerere. Later, Kenny’s teaching and research took him to other parts of the world, including several field trips of undergraduate students from Gloucestershire to South Africa to explore the legacy of Apartheid in South Africa. There he learned with the students about the response to the challenges the country faced under the first democratic president, Nelson ‘Madiba’ Mandela. He will explore the links between his early research and the work he is doing now, which focuses on what access to basic necessities like food and sanitation can tell us about the challenges faced by fast-growing cities. His lecture aims to explore some of the findings of this research, as well as what lessons can be learned from Mwalimu and Madiba for the 21st century.
