The Changing World of History in West Africa
This project explores the local social and political effects of higher education in West Africa, particularly history education. It seeks to chart the integration of universities into networks of international knowledge production and the reorientation of intellectual life away from Europe and towards regional and global linkages. It particularly examines the consequences of decolonization, the economic crises of the 1970s, and the subsequent imposed macroeconomic conditionalities on these aspects of intellectual life.
