Dr. Edwina Ashie-Nikoi

Dr. Edwina Ashie-Nikoi is an archivist and historian of the African and African Diaspora experience with particular interest in the ways peoples of African descent document themselves and how culture and history are traditionally remembered and represented in African/diasporan cultural systems. Her academic research engages the myriad cultural records peoples of African descent produce as well as the institutions and processes involved in preserving these, interrogates how indigenously produced information is (to be) preserved for future generations and examines the impact this has on knowledge production from and about Africa and its diaspora. Dr. Ashie-Nikoi holds a PhD in History from New York University and a MA in Information Studies from the University of Ghana where she is currently a Lecturer.
