Dr Keneilwe Molosi-France

“a broader perspective to life”

I graduated in 2015, having completed my thesis The world of development as understood and experienced by the San in Khwee and Sehunong. My supervisors were Professor Michael Osborne and Dr Lesley Doyle. I have particularly fond memories of the kindness of my supervisors, as they were not only caring about academic performance, they also cared about my social well being      

Since graduating I have been promoted to Senior Lecturer at the University of Botswana. I also won a Fulbright Scholarship and was a visiting research scholar at Penn State University in the United States of America. I have published journal articles and written research proposals which have contributed to my professional advancement. My PhD has also helped me to have a broader perspective to life and how I view other fellow human beings
