My PhD dissertation, completed in 2017 at the University of Michigan. Explores micro-level social dynamics at the turn of the 20th century in the central highlands of Angola. This southwestern African country was  officially under Portuguese colonial rule in 1902, when a large uprising staged by Mbailundu people threatened the tiny European country's rule.

A more detailed summary can be found here, where the full dissertation can be downloaded.

My article in a peer-reviewed journal called Kronos. Related to my dissertation, with specific focus on contemporary Angola based on my fieldwork there in 2008, 2009, and 2013.
