GAHDT Supported Series: ‘(Re)Imagining Archives After Empire: Cases from Africa’
Event 2 of 2: Transnational and Multi-site Research Projects: Reflections from Ghana
This is the second of two seminars funded by the Global Arts + Humanities Discovery Theme highlighting the transformations, challenges, and opportunities which emerge from working in archives in (and on) recently decolonized African states.
Emmanuella Amoh will share insights gleaned from conducting multi-site, multi-country research focusing on the era of Ghana’s decolonization.
Cumulatively, this speaker series seeks to illuminate a pathway in which scholars and archivists can imaginatively pursue scholarship beyond the confines of imperial archives.
Pizza and soft drinks will be provided.
Emmanuella Amoh is a PhD candidate in the Department of History at Purdue University. Her transnational scholarship lies at the intersection of 20th century African history and Diaspora studies with a focus on relations between the USA and Ghana.
Ra’phael Davis is a PhD candidate in the Department of Political Science at the Ohio State University and a Graduate Fellow of the Mershon Center. His research interests include peace and conflict studies with a geographic focus on Nigeria.
