I am an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the School of Social Sciences, Hitotsubashi University, Tokyo, Japan. I finished writing up my dissertation and received Ph.D. in March 2020. My dissertation focuses on South African black education and the uses of history in South African politics. I was a visiting researcher at WISER (Wits Institute for Social and Economic Research at the University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa) from October 2017 to June 2019. I am interested in uncovering the African experience of racial segregation and apartheid in South Africa by using vernacular (isiZulu) and English text written by African people as the main source. My current research interest is the connection between writing history in African languages, especially in isiZulu, and segregationist/apartheid governance in South Africa.
