The Directorate of Research and Consultancy in collaboration with partners, held a daylong seminar on Students' Local Ecological Knowledge About Mangroves, on Wednesday, 1st June, 2022.
The facilitators for the seminar were Peter Vanslambrouck (City Link Coordinator between the coastal cities of Ostend (Belgium) and Banjul City Council) and Diego Sanz Yus (a master’s in human Ecology Student at the Free University in Brussels) currently doing his thesis in The Gambia, Kiang West, studying the Traditional Knowledge and Perceptions of the Sankandi Community about Climate and Environment after the Bintang Bolong Mangrove dieback in the 80's.
In his deliberations, Peter gave a brief background on the EU funded “Boardwalk Project” at the Banjul mangroves. According to him, the project upon completion would allow visitors have a closer access to the mangroves without being soaked in the muds. This, among many other things, would be coupled with state-of-the-art facilities suiting all kinds of visitors. Our students have been tasked to participate in the implementation of the project by designing posters which would be displayed at the mangrove’s boardwalk. In addition, Diego also gave an inspiring presentation on mangroves in The Gambia, its different species and the animals found in the mangroves.

23/05/2022

This month on our Edward Francis Small Lecture Series, we bring you a distinguished scholar on Forensic Entomology. The University of The Gambia through its Department of Biology has been awarded a grant by the American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS) to establish a Forensic Entomology Laboratory at the University of The Gambia. The research is conducted by Prof. Ado-Baba Ahmed (UTG Biology Department) in collaboration with Dr Denise Maria Gemmellaro (School of Natural Sciences, Kean University, New Jersey, USA). Forensic entomology is the application of the study of insects to criminal investigations. Certain insects colonize dead bodies shortly after death. By studying those insect groups, forensic scientists can estimate the minimum post-mortem interval, assess potential movements of the co**se, and acquire information on the manner and cause of death.

As part of the activities to be conducted during the research work, Dr. Denise Maria will deliver a public lecture on the topic “Forensic Entomology – Using Insects to Solve Crimes” on the 25th of May 2022 at the National Nutrition Agency (NaNA) Conference Hall starting at 10:00am.

Pailey is a Liberian scholar-activist working at the intersection of Critical Development Studies, Critical African Studies and Critical Race Studies, she centres her research on how structural transformation is conceived and contested by local, national and transnational actors from ‘crisis’-affected regions of the so-called Global South. Pailey’s current book project, Africa’s ‘Negro’ Republics, examines how slavery, colonialism and neoliberalism in the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, respectively, have shaped the adoption and maintenance of clauses barring non-blacks from obtaining citizenship in Liberia and Sierra Leone. She completed BA degrees in African Studies and English Literature at Howard University, an MSc in African Studies at the University of Oxford and a PhD in Development Studies at SOAS, University of London.
