We continue to collaboratively explore Nigeria's railway heritage in different forms. If you are interested to get involved, please contact Dr Oliver Owen or Legacy 1995.
Dr Oliver Owen's research interests centre on political anthropology and the relations between governments and publics in West Africa, the configurations of material interests and experiential meanings construed in these encounters; as part of an anthropology of the state which ‘de-naturalises’ governmental institutions to look at them as social formations.
