Enongene Nkumbe

Ph.D. Student in Africana Studies


Enongene Nkumbe is a Cameroonian national who, starting with the ongoing struggle for self-determination by citizens of the Anglophone region of his homeland, wishes, through his research, to come to a better understanding of how the many colonial heritages of the continent—Cameroon alone has German, French, and British—affect the trajectories of identities and natio-building and security in African states.  He uses this as a departure point for deeper engagement with issues of multinationalism and identity formation as well as national and regional stability in the Gulf of Guinea, the Central African sub-region and the larger continental space.
