About the speaker
Shane Doyle is a Senior Lecturer in Modern African History at the University of Leeds. He is currently carrying out a research project funded by the AHRC, the British Academy, the British Institute in Eastern Africa, and the ESRC. As part of the project, he is writing a book that will examine the medical and demographic histories of three neighbouring societies in East Africa in order to explain why patterns of sexual behaviour, fertility and mortality changed so dramatically in the decades before the emergence of HIV.
