JOB VACANCY: THE KARIMA PROJECT: Social Science Researcher.

On July 12 1975 Rhodesian security forces pretending to be guerrillas surrounded a village called Karima near Mount Darwin in what is now Mashonaland Central. In the ensuing massacre 23 men, women and children were killed. The Catholic Justice and Peace Commission ensured that the Karima massacre raised international awareness of the violence being levelled against civilians in the Liberation War. More than forty years later the Centre for African Studies at Arrupe Jesuit University is sponsoring a research project in which the researcher will record how the massacre is recalled and what effects it had and continues to have on those who survived.

The person to conduct this research should speak Shona as a first language and preferably be familiar with the area.  He or she will need to establish a relationship of trust with survivors of the massacre and show the tact necessary to enable informants to recover memories that are still painful. He or she should have proven ability to conduct field research and the capability of writing up the findings of such research. We anticipate that the initial research should last for 4 months and should begin October 2018. The Centre will meet the costs that the research work involves and the researcher will receive an honorarium for the 4 months during which he or she is involved in the project.


Persons who would like to be considered for this project should send their applications and their cvs to Professor Anthony Chennells, Centre for African Studies, Arrupe Jesuit University, Harare,  email intunzi2@gmail.com These should be sent before Friday 17 September 2018.
