Inge Brinkman

Inge BrinkmanInge Brinkman has been attached to the African Studies Centre since April 2008 while she carries out research into communication technologies and social relations in Angola. She is engaged in studying the historical relations between literacy/orality, elite-formation and the introduction of the mobile phone in Northern Angola, and coordinating a case-study on returnees, 'development' and new ICT in south-east Angola. These case-studies form part of a larger programme, entitled 'Mobile Africa Revisited', aimed at studying the relations between mobile telephony and social hierarchies. Her former research at the ASC includes a study on mobile telephony in Sudan and writing a history of SNV, a Dutch development organisation.
