Unsettling Cities: Landscapes of Power and Ambivalence in Dahomey

J Cameron Monroe (University of California, Santa Cruz) will give the first seminar in the African Peoples and Pasts series at the Institute on 25 September.

Dr Monroe's seminar is entitled Unsettling Cities: Landscapes of Power and Ambivalence in Dahomey and all are welcome. The seminar will be followed by a wine reception in the Staff Common Room.

His research broadly examines political, economic, and cultural transformation in West Africa and the Diaspora in the era of the slave trade. He has conducted research on the nature of African-American ethnic identity and household-level production in early colonial Virginia.

His current research project, the Abomey Plateau Archaeological Project, is located in the Republic of Bénin in West Africa. This project explores the dynamics of political transformation in West Africa in the era of the slave trade.

Please direct any enquiries about the event to Nick Gestrich.
