African Studies Colloquium Series: Samuel Fury Childs Daly, Duke University

Samuel Fury Childs Daly (Duke University) specializes in the history of twentieth-century Africa. His research bridges West and East Africa, and it combines legal, military, and social historical approaches to the study of the past. His current project considers the history of the Biafra War (1967-1970). This book manuscript, entitled Sworn on the Gun: Law and Crime in the Nigerian Civil War, draws a connection between the crisis conditions of the war and the forms of crime that came to be associated with Nigeria in its wake.
