  • Trumping Development: Selective Delinking and Coercive Governmentality in
           US-Africa Relations
    • Abstract: Globalization—often defined as the increasing interconnectedness of the different parts of the world, involving reductions of barriers to exchange and the movement of ideas, goods, people, money, and so forth—is presented by advocates as a win–win process for all involved (Bhagwati 2007). However, it has attracted criticism, with opponents pointing to its failure to deliver to much of the world's population the prosperity it promised (Selwyn 2017).Beginning in 2008, the North Atlantic financial crisis helped galvanize opposition to globalization in many Western countries, giving rise, for example, to the Occupy Movement, which began in the United States in 2011. Politicians in some countries seized on a general ... Read More

  • Should Christians and Muslims Cohabit after Death' Diverging Views in
           a Senegalese Commune
    • Abstract: In 2014, Abdou Diouf, the former president of Senegal, came under attack by some people in his hometown of Louga. He was accused of being a bad citizen of his place of origin. Specific offenses included not visiting Louga for ten years, not acquiring land there, and not developing the area during his presidency (Leral.net 2014). Beyond these preoccupations was an otherworldly transgression, which had driven some in Louga over the edge. Abdou Diouf had publicly expressed a wish to be buried in the faraway southern Senegalese city of Ziguinchor instead of Louga. Ziguinchor is one of the few Senegalese cities with a mixed cemetery, where people of all faiths can be buried. Diouf reasoned that in Ziguinchor, unlike ... Read More

  • Refashioning Gender Relations: Materiality of Love and Sex in Contemporary
           Nollywood
    • Abstract: The primary concern of this article is the materiality of love and sex in contemporary Nollywood. Romantic love and sex, as lived practices in everyday life, suggest an overlap between the materiality and immateriality of things. While discussing ordinary perceptions about the immateriality of certain beliefs, Daniel Miller reminds us to be attentive to the world of practice to dislodge any distinction between materiality and immateriality. He shows that the practice of seemingly immaterial beliefs often hints at material things. Therefore, systemic cultivation of immateriality at times makes the materiality associated with certain things appear invisible (Miller 2005, 28). To avoid such pitfalls, this article ... Read More

  • International Donor Funding and Social Movement Demobilization: The
           Barabaig Land-Rights Movement in Tanzania
    • Abstract: After gaining independence in the early 1960s, the government of Tanzania embarked on a national strategy for rural development that included large-scale nationalization of agricultural production through parastatal farms. Under this program, the Hanang District in Arusha region was selected for wheat cultivation, and by the end of the 1970s, parastatal wheat farms covered 100,000 acres. To clear the land for farms, the government forcibly removed nearly 40,000 Barabaig pastoralists, whose traditional seasonal grazing areas fell within the designated farming areas. In response, beginning in the late 1960s through the early 1990s, the Barabaig community mounted and sustained a grassroots, indigenous land-rights ... Read More

  • Ubuntu and Development: An African Conception of Development
    • Abstract: The concept of development is an essentially contested one (Collier et al. 2006),1 admitting to a variety of incommensurably competing interpretations. Historically, much of the discourse on development has been construed within the dominating discipline of economics. For example, Ben Fine (2009) offers a rough history of development studies. In its inception as a field, it was largely dominated by (mono)-economics, namely the Washington consensus and the post-Washington consensus. More recently, however, people talk of development with a human face, characterized by attempts to rethink development as a social science problem, wherein many disciplines can contribute to its conceptualization (Fine 2009, 896).Talk of ...

Comme dit la chanson : « La femme est l'avenir de l'homme » tu es l'espoir de l'Afrique. C'est pourquoi nous te demandons plus de tendresse et de compréhension à coté de ton mari chagriné par le chômage, la pauvreté et les difficultés de tous nos temps.Femme, tu es l'école de la vie, ton succès est la réus-site de toutes les nations et ton échec fait tomber les piliers d'une nation. Femme de mon pays, méfies-toi des baptêmes, mariages et toutes autres festivités mondaines. Le Bon Dieu n'aime pas le gaspillage.O African woman, woman of ... Read More

  • Blood Papa: Rwanda's New Generation by Jean Hatzfeld (review)
    • Abstract: Jean Hatzfeld, in addition to writing for the French newspaper Libération for many years, has authored several previous books, including Life Laid Bare and Machete Season: The Killers in Rwanda Speak. His The Antelopes' Strategy: Machete Season (2006) was widely acclaimed within Rwanda studies for its timeliness in providing a forum for several génocidaires to tell their own stories and versions of life during the 1994 genocide and the issues they faced for about ten years afterward. The work provided fascinating insight into the hearts and minds of the guilty. In much the same vein, Hatzfeld in Blood Papa: Rwanda's New Generation returns to Nyamata District in central Rwanda to let his subjects tell their own ... Read More

  • African, Christian, Feminist: The Enduring Search for What Matters by
           Teresia Mbari Hinga (review)
    • Abstract: In African, Christian, Feminist: The Enduring Search for What Matters, Teresia Mbari Hinga, a feminist theologian, argues that Christianity can be, and has been, a resource for African feminist worldmaking. The book is a collection of previously published essays that outline Hinga's thinking over two decades. While Hinga insists that Christianity and feminism are not merely compatible but complementary, she does not shy away from addressing Christianity's past and present entanglements with colonialism, sexism, and racism. Instead, she demonstrates how African feminists have read Christian texts against the grain, employing them as resources for feminist justice. The introduction models this hermeneutic strategy ...

  • Swahili Muslim Publics and Postcolonial Experience by Kai Kresse (review)
    • Abstract: Philosopher Kai Kresse has long established himself as a skillful interpreter of Swahili intellectual discourse on the East African coast. With his latest book, he draws on and expands his earlier work to take us inside the discursive worlds of Swahiliphone Muslim intellectuals in twentieth- and twenty-first-century Kenya. He shows Swahili-speaking Kenyan Muslims wrestling with colonial and postcolonial political dynamics within multiple overlapping frameworks: a localized Swahili discursive tradition of Islamic reform with a genealogy going back to Sheikh Al-Amin Mazrui, a transregional Islamic discourse of enjoining right and forbidding wrong, and the widespread political marginalization of coastal Muslims in ...

  • Africa and Its Diaspora: History, Identities, and Economy ed. by Samuel O.
           Oloruntoba (review)
    • Abstract: Adorning the cover of Samuel O. Oloruntoba's edited collection, Africa and Its Diaspora: History, Identities and Economy, is a simple design—a map of Africa resting on top of a pattern akin to that of textiles woven throughout the African continent. Within the map, several words capture the themes of this monograph. The word diaspora, the biggest and boldest in font, is centered and surrounded by development, history, slavery, identity, immigrant, and other words. The cover, in its aesthetic consistency and deliberateness, functions as shorthand for the book's focus on reorienting the conceptualization and study of the African diaspora as grounded in Paul Zeleza's (2005) definition of diaspora as process ...

  • Getting to Zero: A Doctor and a Diplomat on the Ebola Frontline by Sinead
           Walsh and Oliver Johnson (review)
    • Abstract: On 25 May 2014, officials in Sierra Leone confirmed their first Ebola case, and from 2014 to 2016, hospital staff in various capacities, different nongovernmental organizations, and government agencies battled the ensuing epidemic. In total, 11,310 people died, and more than 10,000 survivors were severely affected by the disease. This was one of the worst outbreaks of Ebola in history. Sinead Walsh and Oliver Johnson, authors of the book Getting to Zero: A Doctor and a Diplomat on the Ebola Frontline, were at the heart of efforts to contain the outbreak, and they provide a fascinating account of the struggle against it.Getting to Zero is a story of how a diplomat, a medical doctor without much experience in ...

  • Exploiting the Wilderness: An Analysis of Wildlife Crime by Greg L.
           Warchol (review)
    • Abstract: Illegal wildlife trade is one of today's foremost challenges, and it has caused heated debates in contemporary conservation narratives, especially concerning how to address it in the face of the risk of extinction of some species. The book offers an eagle's-eye view by parsing the broad spectrum of issues related to illegal wildlife trade from the local to the global scale, with a focus on the "activities of individuals, informal networks, and criminal syndicates that target a range of animals and plants for personal use and profit" (5). The content of this book is clear, simple, concise, and layperson-friendly while being useful as a quick reference guide for experts. The author speaks from experience to give an ... Read More

    • Abstract: Zoë Wicomb is one of South Africa's leading authors, whose works include the novels October, Playing in the Light, and David's Story and the short story collections You Can't Get Lost in Cape Town and The One That Got Away. This book, edited by Andrew van der Vlies, includes sixteen of Wicomb's nonfictional essays first published between 1990 and 2013. The collection ranges widely and includes literary analysis, social commentary, and even a remembrance of Nelson Mandela after his passing, in 2013.The book begins with an extensive chapter by van der Vlies, skillfully introducing Wicomb to readers who may not have been aware of her work. Sketching her biography in the backdrop of the apartheid era, it introduces ... Read More
