The History of Poverty in Africa

At the Heyman Center for the Humanities at Columbia University, Rhiannon Stephens is organizing what promises to be an excellent conference on the History of Poverty in Africa. Jane Guyer is giving a keynote on Thursday March 6,  and then there is a full day on Friday with four panels and 13 papers ranging on dimensions of poverty from the pre-colonial period until current day. The programme looks very promising.
