Chris Vaughan works on twentieth century African history at Liverpool John Moores University. He is Principal Investigator on the AHRC funded research project, 'Regionalism in East Africa, c. 1900-present'. This interdisciplinary history and politics project will run between 2020 and 2022, and is conducted in collaboration with Dr Alden Young (UCLA) and Dr Frank Gerits (Utrecht University). Dr Peter O'Reilly is the Research Associate on this project, based at LJMU. The project aims to provide the first comprehensive study of regionalism as a formal political and economic project in East Africa across both colonial and post-colonial periods. It builds on earlier British Academy funded research outputs published on the politics of federation and regionalism in East Africa in the period of decolonisation.
