ICDL Bibliographical Database
The ICDL Bibliographical Database is a research tool provided by the Gender and Diversity Office (GDO) of the Africa Multiple Cluster of Excellence that the GDO officially launched on 4 November 2021. The Database is designed for Cluster members and organs in Bayreuth, BIGSAS Junior Fellows and the different Cluster Centres (ACCs) of Moi University in Eldoret, Kenya; Rhodes University in Makhanda, South Africa; Université Ki-Zerbo in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso; and the University of Lagos, Nigeria. To facilitate the realisation of the Cluster’s principles of multiplicity, reflexivity and relationality and its academic and political goals of reconfiguring African Studies, the ICDL Database contains bibliographical resources on Intersectionality, Decolonial and Critical Diversity Literacy Approaches. It also provides links to other academic institutions and critical resources such as the African Feminist Forum, pertaining to Intersectional and Critical Diversity Research. The Database is attached to the Cluster‘s Digital Research Environment (DRE). It runs on WissKi Infrastructure, a free and open digital communication tool for managing research data. Thus, the GDO ICDL Team works closely with the DRE Team as regards technical maintenance. To set up an account and get access to this rich collection, please follow the manual instructions for creating a WissKI account or contact Digital Solutions here. The GDO Team is always happy to answer any queries related to the ICDL Bibliographical Database, receive feedback or suggestions for enriching the Database. Do get in touch.
