The Landscapes of Boko Haram

Thursday, March 29, 2018
2:00–3:00 p.m.
Chu Centre, International and Graduate Affairs Building (IGAB), 2nd Floor

Speaker: Scott MacEachern, Bowdoin College

MacEachern examines the deep history of Boko Haram, a contemporary Islamist terrorist organization, but one that is rooted in a long tradition of frontier violence, banditry, and smuggling in Central Africa. His 2018 book Searching for Boko Haram is grounded in 30 summers of archaeological fieldwork in Cameroon and Chad.

Co-sponsored by Western University’s Africa Institute, the Social Science Student Donation Fund, and the Departments of Anthropology and History
