In this episode of Cohort Sistas, the podcast, we speak with Dr. Mikal Woldu, who received her Ph.D. in Social Anthropology from SOAS University of London. Dr. Woldu is of Eritrean heritage and grew up in Italy before moving to London. This migratory pattern both shaped her personal life and informed her research questions, primarily dealing with the practices and attitudes of second-generation Africans in the Diaspora. During our conversation with Dr. Woldu, we discuss how just one person in her Master’s program convinced her to enroll in graduate school, why her research is so much more extensive than just her, and how she advocated for and switched her academic supervisor partway through her doctoral program. She talks about her post-doc project and how they are redefining Pan-Africanism. Dr. Woldu gives incredibly insightful advice regarding the Ph.D. journey and leaves listeners encouraged. Tune in for this insightful conversation with Dr. Woldu!
