Interventions and Uprisings Across Africa: Night 2

Over the course of two evenings, The Polis Project and Warscapes magazine will host conversations on current imperialist interventions across Africa, their connections to militarized policing and surveillance in the United States, the wave of political uprisings on the continent, with a focus on recent movements in Algeria and Sudan, and the importance of transnational solidarities in the face of repression at home and abroad.

Corinna Mullin is visiting professor of international relations and adjunct professor of political science at John Jay College in New York City.

Samar Al-Bulushi is a UC President’s Postdoctoral Fellow and Assistant Professor (beginning Fall 2019) in the Department of Anthropology at UC Irvine.

Nisrin Elamin Adbelrahman is a PhD candidate in Anthropology at Stanford University whose research focuses on the ways Gulf corporate investments in land are reshaping quotidian social relations between landless and landholding stakeholders in the Gezira region of central Sudan.

Brahim Rouabah is a PhD student at the Graduate Center, CUNY, whose research focuses on non-Western political theory in African and West Asia.
