Alessandro Jedlowski is a Belgian Research Fund (F.R.S-FNRS) post-doctoral fellow in anthropology at the Laboratoired’Anthropologie Sociale et Culturelle of the University of Liège (Belgium). His main research interests include African cinema, media and migration, urban culture, and South-South cultural and economic interactions. His current research analyses the political and economic dimensions of film production in the Nigerian video film industry (Nollywood) and compares them with those of other video-film industries emerging around the African continent, and particularly in Ethiopia and Côte d’Ivoire. He published several essays on this topic in international journals and edited collections, and he is the co-editor (together with Ute Röschenthaler) of a recent special issue of the Journal of African Cultural Studies on China-Africa media interactions.

She has been a visiting academic at the University of Cambridge in 2015. She has taught World Politics at the Collège-Universitaire of Sciences Po and is co-founder of the recently created Centre for Research on Africa-India Partnerships. Pooja has an eclectic academic background with a double Masters in French and Francophone Literature (JNU) and Socio-Economics (IEP Grenoble).
