Ethnicity in Africa: Historical, Comparative and Contemporary Investigations

a PSC Research Project [ARCHIVE DISPLAY]

Investigator:   Warren Whatley

Our proposed research seminar ?Ethnicity in African Societies: Historical, Comparative, and Contemporary Investigations,? will provide the first step in a reassessment of the ways in which ethnicity is understood by Africanists in the humanities and social sciences. The matter could hardly be more pressing. Recent events in Kenya and elsewhere have tragically highlighted the importance of ethnicity, but also the poverty of the frameworks we use to delineate and explain it. The study of ethnicity in Africa (and beyond) is trapped in disciplinary dead-ends and lacking in conceptual clarity.

Funding Period: 09/08/2009 to 08/31/2012
