Dean Allen Promo Video

Project Description

Dean Allen's association with South Africa began in the 1990s and developed further during his postgraduate studies at Stellenbosch University in the Western Cape. He has since taught at leading universities in South Africa, Australia, Northern Ireland and his native England, and he has published extensively in the areas of sport history and sociology. Dean is a popular guest lecturer and speaker and has presented keynote papers around the world. It was while researching for his master's degree that Dean first visited Matjiesfontein and a special relationship began with the town and its people. His fascination for the history of cricket, coupled with the region's rich past, formed the basis of his PhD, which he completed in 2008. Empire, War and Cricket in South Africa is his first book.
