Anais Angelo is a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of African Studies, University of Vienna. Born in France, she graduated in political sciences (Sciences Po Paris), specialized in African Studies (University of Michigan, Ann Arbor) and completing her Ph.D. in history (European University Institute, Florence). Her first book, Power and the Presidency in Kenya: The Jomo Kenyatta Years (Cambridge University Press, 2020), tells the history of presidential powers in postcolonial Kenya. She is currently writing on the struggles of the first women who campaigned for a parliamentary seat in Kenya, in the 1960s-1970s, a time when politics remained an essentially male field.

Her research interest include African presidential powers, African women's postcolonial history, archives and sources, biography and autobiography writing.

She is happy to supervise and learn from Master students and to keep broadening her teaching experience!
