Noha H. E. Hamza


I hold a PhD in Sociology from the University of Khartoum, my thesis research focused on water quality issues and the relation between health, socio-economic and cultural aspects in the context of Khartoum State, Sudan. I am Assistant Professor at the Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology, Faculty of Economic and Social Studies, University of Khartoum, and coordinator of post-graduate studies for the same department, where I also supervise fieldwork surveys with under-graduate students.

I have been a member of the ANR-DGF project WAMAKHAIR (Water Management in Khartoum International Research), led by CEDEJ, Universities of Nanterre, Paris 8, Bayreuth (2008-12), through which I benefited of a scholarship in Paris 8 University, France (2011). I also participated as a member of the teaching staff to the « French-Sudanese Autumn School. Approaches and methods of social sciences inquiry on inequalities » (Khartoum, October 2015).

My main research interests are in the fields of access to water and natural resources, relations between water and health issues, migrations and urbanization dynamics.
