History, Harrison Hall, Room 219
Greencastle, IN


Professor of History (on leave Spring 2015)

Research Interests

I am currently engaged in work on African diasporic communities within the African continent -- a follow-up to my earlier investigations of Sierra Leonean emigration into the Niger delta. I am hoping to see how the alienation of white settler communities in east, central, and southern Africa compares with the marginalization of emigrant African communities in their new homes on the African continent.
