Ruramisai Charumbira is the author of Imagining a Nation: History and Memory in Making Zimbabwe, and a second research book in-progress. A historian of African and Global History trained at Yale University, she has more than a decade of experience as a History department faculty member at the University of Texas at Austin and elsewhere. At the Walter Benjamin Kolleg, Dr. Charumbira continues her passion for the Humanities. She initiated and leads (on a voluntary basis) the Humanities Lab THoR, an ongoing network of scholars passionate about bringing their Humanities and Social Science research to a wider nonexpert public. While the Lab’s name invokes Thor, the Germanic/Old Norse hammer-wielding god of Thunder, the Walter Benjamin Kolleg’s THoR invites current and interested scholars to join the research network by Taking the Humanities on The Road (THoR).
Any and every scholar in any discipline at the University of Bern and beyond is welcome participate in this exciting adventure. To participate, please contact THoR Coordinator
