University Of Ghana-Carnegie Writing Centre Workshopping Series No. 1: Thesis Introduction

Starting August 9, 2021 - Ending August 9, 2022

UNIVERSITY OF GHANA-CARNEGIE WRITING CENTRE

WORKSHOPPING SERIES NO. 1: THESIS INTRODUCTION

 

The University of Ghana-Carnegie Writing Centre (UG-CWC), in Collaboration with the Centre for Teaching and Learning Innovation (CTLI), University of Ghana, invites graduate students of the University who are in their thesis year to the first of its in-person Workshopping Series.

 

Date: 30th-31st August 2021

Venue: Language Centre Computer Laboratory

 

The UG-Carnegie Writing Centre/CTLI Workshopping Series will focus on face-to-face coaching on specific sections of a writing project: introduction, literature review, analysis and discussion of results, and conclusions. After the online workshops that provided guidelines for scholarly writing, these workshopping sessions will deliver hands-on training for participants to work through various stages of their draft manuscripts. This first part of the Workshopping Series will be devoted to thesis writing, beginning with the introductory parts.

 

Introductions are very important because they lay out what will be done in the thesis; get the introduction right and the rest of the thesis will follow. This two-day programme will therefore provide thorough, step-by-step, one-on-one practical sessions for writing a good thesis introduction. Participants must submit their draft introductions before the workshopping begins. They will then work with the resource persons during the sessions to review, revise, rewrite, or fine tune their drafts. The goal is to help each participant produce an introduction that draws readers in, provides relevant background, and establishes a clear focus and purpose to set the stage for the thesis.

 

Objectives of the Workshop

· to provide an opportunity for practical thesis writing under the guidance of experienced resource persons;

· to help participants write effective thesis introductions that present a clear purpose and focus;

· to work with participants through the main steps of the introduction and set the stage for their theses;

· to lead participants to evaluate and revise/rewrite draft introductions to achieve completeness and coherence;

· to guide participants to produce a clear writing style free of major errors.

 

Structure of the Module

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Extends Grant To Support Doctoral Training In The Humanities At The University Of Ghana

Starting July 2, 2021 - Ending July 2, 2022

THE ANDREW W. MELLON FOUNDATION EXTENDS GRANT TO SUPPORT DOCTORAL TRAINING IN THE HUMANITIES AT THE UNIVERSITY OF GHANA

The Board of Trustees of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation at its Board Meeting held in June 2021 approved a proposal from the University of Ghana to provide a grant of $800,000 to support doctoral training in the Humanities. The grant will be used to support 13 PhD students for the next four years. The new grant is a renewal of an earlier grant provided for the University in 2017 to support 15 masters and 10 PhD students in the Humanities. The grant provides stipend, support for research and participation in international conference, and visit to a Mellon partner institution in Africa for a period of at least 3 months.

The Board’s decision to extend the grant is largely due to progress made by the earlier cohort of grantees of the award, and the satisfactory management of the project to date. Out of the 15 masters students granted support in 2017, 13 have successfully completed their studies, while the remaining two students are due to complete their studies soon. Funding for the 10 PhD students is expected to end in October 2021, but already two students have submitted their theses and one has successfully passed his oral examination.

The Principal Investigators of the project have expressed gratitude to the Foundation for their confidence in the project team and their readiness to support the humanities agenda at the University of Ghana. They also thank the Vice-Chancellor for his interest in and support for the project, Heads of participating Departments and Institutes as well as supervisors of the students who have worked with the project team since 2017. It is expected that some of the PhD students whose studies are being funded through the project, would eventually become faculty in the University of Ghana.

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, in addition to this project, is also providing support for other projects at the University of Ghana. These include: Re-invigorating Humanities Research for faculty; support for the establishment of a Centre for Teaching and Learning Innovation; Building Capacity for Early Career Humanities Scholars; and the Women and Political Participation in Africa project.

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation is the largest supporter of the arts and humanities in the United States of America. Since 1969, the Foundation has been guided by its core belief that the humanities and arts are essential to human understanding. The Foundation believes that the arts and humanities are where we express our complex humanity, and that everyone deserves the beauty, transcendence, and freedom that can be found there. Through its grants, the Foundation seeks to build just communities enriched by meaning and empowered by critical thinking, where ideas and imagination can thrive.

ABOUT UNIVERSITY OF GHANA

The Department of Marine and Fisheries Sciences (DMFS), College of Basic and Applied Sciences (CBAS), School of Biological Sciences (SBS), of the University of Ghana (UG) in collaboration with WorldFish and the Norwegian Veterinary Institute are offering a unique learning opportunity for motivated graduate students for two years duration to contribute to a regional project on Aquatic Animal Health research and education to support sustainable aquaculture in sub-Saharan Africa.

 

ABOUT WORLDFISH

WorldFish is an international, non-for-profit research organization that works to reduce hunger, malnutrition and poverty by improving fisheries and aquaculture. With a 45-years track record of leading-edge science, WorldFish generates research evidence and innovations to inform sustainable practices and inclusive policies that enable better livelihoods and healthier diets for millions of poor people, particularly women, who depend on fish for food, nutrition and income. WorldFish is a member of CGIAR , the world’s largest global partnership on agriculture research and innovation for a food secure future. Headquartered in Penang, Malaysia and with regional offices across Africa, Asia and the Pacific, WorldFish leads the cross-disciplinary CGIAR Research Program (CRP) on Fish Agri-Food Systems (FISH).

 

Background

African aquaculture is growing rapidly. Tilapia and catfish are the two most important farmed fish species in Africa. Little research attention and investments have been made to better understand disease epidemiology and control mechanisms in these cultured fish groups. With increased intensification and resultant proliferation of fish diseases, many African countries are realizing the importance of biosecurity governance and building better aquatic animal health research capacity and management to support sustainable development of aquaculture in the continent. International

partnerships and collaboration with expert institutions can facilitate the transition for African countries to develop and implement better biosecurity governance.

Increased Sustainability in the Aquaculture Sector in SSA, through Improved Aquatic Animal Health Management is a regional project funded by the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation – NORAD. Under this project, 6 Masters students will be enrolled in Ghanaian University with unique opportunity to be trained at WorldFish facility in Egypt, Fish for Africa Innovation Hub, and co-supervised by WorldFish and the Norwegian Veterinary Institute experts.

 

Entry Requirements

We are looking for talented 6 students with background/interest in one or more domains of the following areas: fish biology, epidemiology and aquatic animal health management, microbiology, parasitology, virology, rapid molecular diagnostic, vaccinology, antimicrobial resistance and contaminants, policy analysis or economics.

 

· Applicant must be in full employment in a relevant institution or company.

· You must have obtained a first higher education degree in Biological, Veterinary or related Sciences from a recognized university with a good grade.

· Excellent writing and communication skills in English.

· Willing to travel.

· Excellent interpersonal skills and able to work in a team-oriented multi-cultural environment.

· Trustworthy and high level of integrity.

 

Benefits

The studentship will cover the cost of tuition fees, travel, research, thesis production and publication plus stipend for 2 years.

Our Offer

This is Nationally Recruited Staff (NRS) position. The successful candidate will be legally admitted to the University of Ghana.

The positions for 6 Masters students will be based in Ghana with significant travel for training in Egypt. Interviews are expected to be held before the end of April 2021.Only shortlisted candidates will be notified and expected to attend the interview.

Call for Applications - Building Capacity for Early Career Humanities Scholars in Africa

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
 

Building Capacity for

Early Career Humanities Scholars in Africa

 

University of Ghana

Stellenbosch University

American University in Cairo

Washington University in St. Louis

    

Building Capacity for Early Career Humanities Scholars in Africa (BECHS-Africa) is a partnership involving four universities: University of Ghana, American University in Cairo, Stellenbosch University and Washington University in St. Louis, with University of Ghana as the lead Institution. Funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, it is a three-year transnational programme, which seeks to enhance research capacity for early career scholars in the humanities. The programme will fund the travel, housing and other related costs of selected early career humanities scholars from the four institutions to spend four to six months at one of the other partner institutions. 

The aim of the project is to create a space for scholars in the humanities to enhance their research agenda in their early career years. The period of stay (four to six months) in the collaborating institution will allow for targeted mentorship and guidance for the selected scholars by identified senior scholars who share their research interests, while also providing an avenue for interaction and the sharing of research ideas and methodologies with peers. The project is unique in many respects as, unlike some existing initiatives, it seeks to create avenues for early career scholars to have the opportunity of residency across the three regions of Africa as well as at a northern institution.

 

The Fellowship. The Project provides a four to six-month residency at any of the four collaborating institutions. Support comprises the following:

  1. An economy return flight
  2. Travel Insurance
  3. Accommodation
  4. Office space
  5. A monthly stipend to cover transport, meals, entertainment and other incidentals
  6. Access to library facilities at the host university

Expectations.  Successful applicants are expected to:

  1. Be in residence at the host institution for four to six months
  2. Attend local presentations, conferences and workshops organized by the host institution that are of relevance to the scholar’s research
  3. Attend grant writing and publication workshops offered by the host university
  4. Organize a workshop based on her/his research topic, through which the scholar will receive detailed feedback from leading academics in the field
  5. Fulfill the research and publication goals set out in the original application
  6. Provide a final report
  7. Acknowledge support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in any subsequent publications and provide BECHS-Africa with all citations to publications resulting from the residency.

 Eligibility. To be eligible an applicant must:

  1. Be in a full-time permanent post in the humanities in any of the four collaborating institutions
  2. Be an early career scholar with a record of research and academic publishing
  3. Have a PhD that was obtained within the last ten years (2011 or later)
  4. Have a scholarly record of publications commensurate with career stage or years from degree

Collaborating Institutions

The institutions involved in BECHS-Africa have been selected to provide opportunities for fellows to carry out their residency across three regions of Africa: western, southern and northern Africa, as well as at one institution in the United States. The institutions are all highly ranked in the Times Higher Educational Rankings of Universities, are active in research in the humanities and social sciences and have demonstrated high research output. The selection has also been informed by the availability of mentors and adequate library facilities to support a robust and dynamic academic environment. They are:  The University of Ghana (lead institution), American University in Cairo, Stellenbosch University and Washington University in Saint Louis.

Submission of Applications

Eligible candidates should complete the project application coversheet, which can be downloaded here. The completed form must be signed, dated, endorsed and submitted together with the following documents, combined into a single PDF.  Full applications should be submitted electronically via email to bechs-africa@ug.edu.gh.

Complete applications must be received by 1700 GMT on Friday April 16th, 2021. Selection will be made by Friday May 21st, 2021.  Scholars should be in residence at their host institutions by September/October (AUC) or January/February 2022 (AUC, SU, WUSTL), depending upon the term of appointment.

COVID-19 Guidelines for UG students

Starting January 4, 2021 - Ending January 4, 2022

 

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new strain of coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, which was discovered in China in December 2019. Most people infected with the COVID-19 virus will experience mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without requiring special treatment.  Older people, and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are more likely to develop serious illness.

This document is a guideline developed by the University Health Services COVID-19 Response Team to inform UG students on:

  1. Preventive measures to prevent spread of COVID-19
  2. How and when to get tested, and get results
  3. How positive cases are managed
  4. Additional support available for all UG students.

Due to the fact that a lot of information is being generated to understand how best to manage this pandemic globally, these guidelines will be updated according to national and global trends.

Title: Forgiveness: Benefits and Alleged Harms

Time: 2:00pm GMT

Date: Friday, 27th November 2020

 

Abstract

Studies have found that the act of forgiveness can reap huge benefits not only for personal health and wellbeing, but also, for public health and social relationships. However, it is alleged that at certain times, particularly in abusive relationships and other situations of continuous offenses, forgiveness can be harmful, emboldening perpetrators. This presentation will highlight the benefits of forgiveness, clarifying what it is and what it is not – other ways of coping with offenses that may include elements of, yet distinct from the act of complete forgiveness. Implications for forgiveness research in Ghana and for personalised and population-wide forgiveness education and training are highlighted, with focus on the REACH forgiveness model as an evidence-based self-help training model for engendering forgiveness.

Biography

Judith Osae-Larbi is a Health Psychologist and Research Fellow at the West African Genetic Medicine Centre (WAGMC), University of Ghana. Her areas of work focus on the role of psychological processes, including forgiveness, on patient experiences and health outcomes. She is also the Founding Executive Director of Psychological Relief for Women International (PReWI) – a non-profit organisation focused on bringing psychological relief to women in distress including connecting women in distress to other mental health resources.

Customarily, the 2020 Edition of the Remembrance Day Service and Prayers would have been physically observed with bereaved families on Sunday 1st November with a Christian Service and on Friday 6th November 2020 with Moslem Prayers.

Nevertheless, I respectfully urge all of us, to commemorate the 2020 Remembrance Day with solemn thoughts and prayers for our departed members.

The University grieves and commiserates with the families of all those we have painfully lost, even as we console ourselves that the Good Lord will keep and reward their souls for the services rendered to society and mankind.

We pray that the Good Lord comforts and strengthens us all with the assurance from Psalm 34:18 that:

“The Lord is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit”.

We will forever cherish the memories of our departed ones.

MAY THEIR SOULS FIND PEACE IN THE LORD

Title: The evolving role of finance in renewable electricity systems in Senegal Registration link - https://uni-freiburg.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZcudO6sqDwpHd3s7ZaM9TCUIT...

Time: 11 am GMT

Date: Thursday 29th October 2020

 

Abstract

According to the IEA, in 2018 75 per cent of Senegal’s electricity was generated from diesel generators. Until recently, the country suffered from regular and prolonged electricity blackouts and load-shedding, accompanied by rising electricity tariffs. However, electricity security and access have started to improve since 2012 following the government’s commitment to achieve 100 per cent electrification and overhaul the generation mix, with the promotion of renewable energy as a core objective. In the last decade, significant regulatory changes have been introduced to allow for the introduction of privately generated electricity. Consequently, significant developments have been made at various scales, including the development of the 158 MW Parc Eolien Taiba N’Diaye wind farm and various solar PV plants at the utility-scale; the development of numerous solar PV mini-grids; and the rapid development of off-grid and micro-grid systems across the country.

Thus far, however, limited critical thinking has been dedicated to how these emerging systems of renewable electricity systems are being financed and owned. With this in mind, I ask the following questions:

· What are the evolving configurations and processes of finance and investment in different scales of renewable electricity generation in Senegal?

· Through which regulatory mechanisms have they been facilitated?

· How are they interacting with national and local territorial realities?

Analytically the research builds on emerging concepts of ‘geographies of electricity capital’ (Luke and Huber 2020) in order to understand evolving interactions between finance, technologies and infrastructure and the role of the state and other public and private actors in setting the terms for new configurations of electricity generation, transmission and distribution.

Biography

Webinar on results of WACCBIP COVID-19 seroprevalence studies in parts of southern Ghana

Starting October 27, 2020 - Ending October 27, 2021

Members of the University community are hereby invited to a webinar being organized by the West African Centre for Cell Biology of Infectious Pathogens (WACCBIP), to share results of seroprevalence studies that were conducted by scientists from WACCBIP and the Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research at the University of Ghana, to assess the levels of exposure to SARS-CoV-2 in the Greater Accra Region and Kasoa, a large town in the Central Region of Ghana.  

The scientists successfully screened 1305 individuals at three (3) major markets/lorry stations, two (2) major shopping malls, three (3) hospitals and two (2) research institutions involved in COVID-19 work. Participants were screened with a lateral flow type Rapid Diagnostic Test that simultaneously detects IgM and IgG antibodies to SARS-CoV-2. The screening was done from July to September 2020 and the key findings from the investigations are as follows: 

 

1. Overall, 19% of participants (252 out of 1305) tested positive for IgM or IgG or both. 

2. The exposure rate was significantly higher among individuals tested at Markets/Lorry stations (26.9%) compared to those at Shopping Malls (9.4%). 

3. There was no significant difference in exposure rates in Females (19.9%) compared to Males (18.5%). 

4. The 41-60-year age group had the highest exposure rate (27.2%). 

5. By levels of education, individuals with only Basic or no education (26.2%) had a significantly higher exposure rate compared to those with Tertiary level education (13.1%). 

6. Furthermore, the exposure rate was significantly higher in individuals in the Informal employment sector (24.0%) compared to those in the Formal sector (15.0%). 

 

The scientists will discuss the results in detail and place in context what the results mean for Ghana's fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

Date: Wednesday, October 28, 2020 

Time: 12:00 p.m. (GMT)
