History Hub


Connecting past and present

Gai Roufe lectures at the Inter-university programme of African studies. This programme is shared by Ben Gurion University of the Negev, Tel Aviv University and the Open University. His research interests include precolonial history of Africa, the history of the Portuguese presence in south-east Africa and Portuguese colonialism in Africa.

Recently, as part of the EU’s Erasmus+ exchange programme, Dr Roufe was visiting lecturer in the University College Dublin School of History where he recorded three podcasts for History Hub.

  1. The creation of modern Portuguese colonialism in Sub-Saharan Africa.
  2. The Portuguese Colonial Wars in Angola, Mozambique, and Portuguese Guinea.
  3. The Process of Decolonisation of Portuguese Africa.

The podcasts are now available on Soundcloud and on iTunes.

Erasmus+ is the EU’s programme to support education, training, youth and sport in Europe. Its budget of €14.7 billion will provide opportunities for over 4 million Europeans to study, train, gain experience, and volunteer abroad.
