CFP: ASA 2019 Popular Culture and the Historical Imagination of the Military in Africa

I am organizing a panel for the 2019 ASA on popular culture and the historical imagination of the military throughout Africa.

Paper abstracts can focus on the historical and popular imagination of African militaries, including national armies, non-state forces, warriors in the service of royal or religious orders, mercenary groups, etc. Each paper should compare the history of these military actors with popular representations in artistic depictions, whether contemporary or historical. Representations might include paintings, photography, films, novels, songs, or other media.

Call for Papers: LSA Sponsored-panels at the African Studies Association meeting (Boston, Nov. 21-23, 2019).
