Esma Karadağ, PhD candidate at CAS, was offered a research fellowship from the Leibniz Institute for Educational Media | Georg Eckert Institute (GEI) for a four-week stay at the Institute in 2022. She will visit the institute to get access to the large number of materials in the library about history textbooks and textbook study across the world. She will engage with research on textbooks and on histories of thought as captured in textbooks in different contexts. She will have the opportunity to access visiting scholars, researchers, staff, and interns at the institute on how they go about their work and their research development which might be insightful for her to develop textbook research methods and contextualisation.  Esma's PhD  will analyse the National Curriculum Statements of South Africa and South African History textbooks to see the changing and ongoing discourse on Pan-Africanism. Her doctoral research is supervised by Dr June Bam-Hutchison (African Studies) and Professor Azeem Badroodien (Education).
