Nic Cheeseman, Co-Editor
Nic Cheeseman is one of those people who never left Oxford. Thankfully, the University gave him a job to keep him out of trouble. He mainly talks about Kenya and Zambia but occasionally strays further afield when he is feeling lucky. Knowing that its always more fun reading someone else’s work than your own, Nic also edits African Affairs. He is sometimes accused of being a political scientist.
SJ Cooper-Knock, Co- Editor
The common-or-garden SJ is usually found loitering with intent around Oxford’s libraries in a valiant quest to finish her DPhil on crime, policing and the social contract in South Africa. When she escapes the dreaming spires, she can be seen running, climbing and (more frequently) falling over in the Peak District.
James Smith, Web Design
James battles with the frequent power outages in Kenya to keep the site running smoothly. While the sun is in the sky he has a real job with the Rift Valley Institute. As it sets he moonlights, with the company of white wine, as a writer, editor and web designer.
