Sudanese Studies at Durham


SSSUK has always had a strong link with Sudanese Studies at Durham University. International Sudan Studies Conferences were hosted there in 1991 and 2000. The University's library houses the Sudan Archive - particularly strong in unpublished papers and photographs from the condominium and Mahdist periods - and four other groups of printed material relating to the Sudan.

Past and present custodians of the collection serve on the SSSUK Committee, as does Dr Cherry Leonardi, who researches and teaches South Sudanese and Sudanese history in the University.
