David Drengk is a young Africa historian who has graduated from the Humboldt University in Berlin and Leiden University. He holds a diploma in area studies Asia/Africa, Agricultural Sciences (B.A.) as well as African Studies (M.A. Research). Mr. Drengk focuses particularly on social and oral history in a Southern African context.

Previous research projects have led the young researcher to Southern Malawi (‘Social order and hierarchy in Che Mboma and Likotima village, Southern Malawi’) and the Wild Coast in South Africa (‘Pushing Social Boundaries: Social history of Surfing and People between 1960 and 1990 at South Africa’s Wild Coast’) where he conducted fieldwork in several local villages on historic social structures and social interactions.

In November 2017, Mr. Drengk started doing his PhD in African History as part of the research team “A Global History of Technology, 1850 – 2000 (GLOBAL-HOT)” at the Technical University of Darmstadt.
