"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


shameless self-promotion

I have several speaking engagements and conference presentations coming up in the next few weeks. Please stop by and say hello if you can make it!
  • March 9, time TBD at the Johns Hopkins SAIS Nanjing Center - "Roads, Rebels, & Land: What China's Role in the Democratic Republic of Congo Means for Development, Security, & Human Rights" (open only to members of the Center community)
  • March 18, 1pm at the McGill University Faculty of Law - "Violence, Land Rights, and Ethnicity in the Kivus: Five Million Deaths that Aren't a Genocide"
  • March 18-19 in Montreal - Annual Meeting of the International Studies Association. I am on a round table on legitimacy and sovereignty on Friday morning and chair a panel on Somali piracy on Saturday afternoon. Kudos to Sienna Anstis & colleagues for the flier design (above), which is one of the coolest I've ever seen.
  • April 1 in Chicago - Annual Meeting of the Midwest Political Science Association. I'm presenting on an 8am (!) panel with, among others, the amazing @dadakim. The papers are about public services in Africa; mine is on measurement problems in the study of public goods in fragile states.
Hope to meet many of you soon!

If you have a chance to sample the smoked meat sandwiches at Schwartz's, do so. The place is a Montreal institution and has been featured in National Geographic. For finer food, you can't go wrong with Au Pied de Cochon or L'Express. Both are a 10-minute cab ride from McGill University.

Thanks, Marc! It's my first time in Montreal and I'm looking forward to the trip.
