Dr Adrian Browne
|ESRC Fellow in the Department of History|
Adrian Browne specialises in modern African history with a focus on Uganda. He is writing an environmental, economic, and social history of the lakes of the Uganda-Congo borderlands in the twentieth century, based on his ESRC-funded doctoral thesis. A second strand of his research concerns the intellectual and political history of Africa’s Cold War at home and abroad, with a focus on Uganda's revolutionary left.
Adrian holds an MA in Social and Economic History (Research Methods) from Durham University, an MSc in African Studies from Oxford University, and a BA in English Language and Literature from the University of Leeds.
Before undertaking postgraduate study at Durham, he worked as a journalist and researcher focusing on energy and infrastructure in Africa, and has continued to publish on these topics.
