  • Introduction: Histories of Mobility, Histories of Labor, Histories of
           Africa
    • Abstract: Migrant labor is one of the most extensively studied subjects of Africa’s colonial history, helping to inaugurate the professional study of Africa in multiple academic disciplines. Anthropologists in the 1940s, working to outline the impact of colonial rule, used migrant labor to demonstrate the changes occurring within African societies previously considered immunized by “tradition” against major social change. Economists in the 1950s and 1960s, seeking to gauge the prospects of economic transformation in Africa, examined migrant labor between the “traditional” and “modern” sectors of the economy in order to divine what future changes in the balance between these two putatively separate economic spheres might ...

  • Gendered Exclusion and Contestation: Malawian Women’s Migration and Work
           in Colonial Harare, Zimbabwe, 1930s to 1963
    • Abstract: Mainstream scholarship has presented the history of both internal and international migration as a male phenomenon in the context of capitalist development. This obscured women’s mobility throughout the twentieth century. Marxist scholarship on Southern, West, East and North Africa stresses men’s migrant labor flows; recruitment processes and labor controls; and struggles for a fair wage, better working and living conditions.1 Even West African literature on inter-colonial commercial migration focuses on how “men came and went.”2 Such androcentric literature erases women’s engagement as inter-colonial migrant workers, reflecting prevailing patriarchal perceptions of the “migrant worker,” and marking a significant ...

  • Earning an Age: Migration and Maturity in Colonial Kenya, 1895–1952
    • Abstract: Age matters a great deal in Kenya. Long before British conquest at the turn of the twentieth century, age framed social, political, and economic relationships within East African communities. How men and women lived their lives, explained their place in society, and sought mobility through it were all influenced by their sense of belonging to a given generation and the relationships they forged with their age-mates.1 Early anthropological literature emphasizes the importance of age in the organization of labor and access to wealth created by family members’ efforts.2 Elder men competed with one another to control the labors of wives and mothers as well as young male warriors and clients. To regulate competition ... Read More

  • Reinterpreting Labor Migration as Initiation Rite: “Ghana Boys” and
           European Clothing in Dogon Country (Mali), 1920–1960
    • Abstract: Most of the current anthropological studies on the relationships between migration and global consumption in Africa have been conducted in relation to globalization discourses of the 1990s.2 Few longue durée approaches have been adopted to understand the cultural and identity formation in the African laborers’ villages of origin.3 However, it is possible even in the early twentieth century to see how young African migrants—through consumption of western items in their own villages—reproduced local institutions of social promotion. Reinterpreting labor migration as a rite of passage through an anthropological and historical perspective demonstrates the formation of “cultural heroes” through the transfer and ... Read More

  • Panya: Economies of Deception and the Discontinuities of Indentured Labour
           Recruitment and the Slave Trade, Nigeria and Fernando Pó, 1890s–1940s
    • Abstract: In Nigeria, across various languages, panya (páɲà) is the colloquial name for Bioko, formerly the Spanish colony of Fernando Pó. In West Africa during the nineteenth century, the noun “Panyer” meant “a Spaniard,” from the pidgin rendering of España. In Igbo areas, Ugo Nwokeji says, “up to today, the word panya in Igbo folklore refers to forceful removal to the unknown.” The same is true in Ibibio, though I would add the important qualification that “force” in panya stresses a series of social and physical forces that keep someone from coming back rather than the act of violent “seizure” which in West Africa in the pre-colonial period was referred to as being panyarred.1Panya and panyarring have different ...

  • Migration and Forced Labor in the Social Imaginary of Southern Mozambique,
           1920–1964
    • Abstract: In a 1979 interview in Guija, in the southern Mozambican province of Gaza, 79-year old Gabriel Mukavi recounted a conversation he had with the local administrator in 1963:You came to Africa for the wrong reasons, and you are guilty of that. I won’t discuss the situation in other places, because I don’t know anything about them, but I can talk about Gaza. What was it like when you arrived in Gaza, in the era of Ngungunhana? It was easy for you to capture him because you did it when Maguiguane was gone, he had left to consult with the ancestors and find food for the army. After capturing Ngungunhana you systematically oppressed the people, using Angolan soldiers, who went from house to house forcing our wives to wash ... Read More

  • Hunting “Wrongdoers” and “Vagrants”: The Long-Term Perspective of
           Flight, Evasion, and Persecution in Colonial and Postcolonial
           Congo-Brazzaville, 1920–1980
    • Abstract: In October 1936, the administrator of the region (département) of Sangha, L. Gondran, was increasingly vexed. For a number of months, he had vividly protested against the severe attacks that some more liberal colleagues had directed against his activities in the region, situated in the remote northern interior of the French colony of the Middle-Congo (current-day Republic of Congo).1 Gondran was among those who felt the impact of the timid reform measures that the Popular Front in the French metropole had introduced: notwithstanding a whole bundle of difficulties that characterized the implementation of “left-wing” colonial policies, the atmosphere changed within the administrative debates.2 Minority opinions came ...

  • “Nifa Nifa”: Technopolitics, Mobile Workers, and the Ambivalence of
           Decline in Acheampong’s Ghana
    • Abstract: In July 1972, a mere seven months after taking over leadership of the country in a military coup, the National Redemption Council and its leader, Col. Ignatius Kutu Acheampong, announced that Ghana was going to drive on the right-hand side of the road. By continuing to drive on the left, Acheampong and the NRC argued, Ghana not only reinforced its history as a British colony, but it also isolated itself from its neighbors and limited its potential for economic growth and development. A massive campaign, “Operation Keep Right,” was scheduled to culminate on August 4, 1974, when road signs and drivers would switch to the other side of the road in a massive feat of social and infrastructural engineering. Drivers and ... Read More

  • From Luanda and Maputo to Berlin: Uncovering Angolan and Mozambican
           Migrants’ Motives to Move to the German Democratic Republic
           (1979–1990)
    • Abstract: Regina’s poem expresses the intensity of emotions that accompanied her move from the People’s Republic of Mozambique to the German Democratic Republic (East Germany) in the winter of 1988.2 She migrated as a young Mozambican woman to work and receive vocational training on East Germany’s factory floors. What is notable about Regina’s poem is that it claims ownership of her new future, despite the fact that she arrived in Berlin as part of a bilateral agreement between socialist states that regulated her contract length, place of employment, housing, pay, and, to a certain extent, even monitored her free time and regulated her personal relationships. Yet Regina embraced her new life in in the face of multiple ... Read More

  • Tracing the Itineraries of Working Concepts across African History
    • Abstract: This essay takes as its starting point a question: do historians of Africa’s early and more recent pasts need each other’s labor histories when studying the relationship between work and mobility?1 A response in the negative foregrounds the differences between the economic and political worlds of Africans living before the fifteenth century and the economic and political worlds of merchant capitalism, industrial capitalism, colonialism, independence, and neoliberalism.2 This answer suggests that as people moved for the purpose of work from the early modern period, the ties forged (and severed) between people and with objects were dramatically changed from the strategies of earlier communities. We may well ask ... Read More
