These projects are the outcome of field research and skills training applied to African societies in the Netherlands, in particular, in The Hague. Close to Leiden, students went out with their notebooks, camera's and voice recorders to explore various African facets of the city. This resulted in four mixed method projects and a series of personal reflections on their experiences in fieldwork and skills training. The project was carried out by Master students African Studies for the course Researching Africa in the 21st century.
