BA(H) Queen's University, 2010
My research broadly involves the fields of modern African history, the history of political economy & conceptions of 'development,' and the history of radical (anarchist, syndicalist and Marxist) politics.
Under Dr. Robert Shenton, I will be looking at the roots of modern African anarchist theory & practice, with attention to how this unique form of anarchism takes inspiration from both post-colonial thinkers and from the European early anarchists. My geographic focus will centre on South Africa and Nigeria. In addition, I am interested in theories of underemployment/'overpopulation,' the microfinance industry, and in conceptions of violence & reparation in post-colonial politics.
I also copy edit for the academic journal Nokoko, an open-access publication promoting dialogue, discourse and debate on Pan-Africanism, Africa, and Africana.
