Pedro Monaville is a historian of modern Africa, trained in Europe and the United States. His work is indebted to a rich tradition of ethnographic history in African studies, but it also asks new questions about the writing of postcolonial histories, decolonization, and the internationalization of African politics in the 1960s. His dissertation, entitled “Decolonizing the University: Postal Politics, the Student Movement, and Global 1968 in the Congo,” was the recipient of the Arthur Fondiler Award for Best Dissertation in History at the University of Michigan. He comes to the Eisenberg Institute after two semesters at Williams College, where he taught surveys and advanced seminaries in African history and on the global 1960s.
His research at the Institute will focus on turning his dissertation into a book manuscript. He will also complete shorter publication projects, including an article about Patrice Lumumba’s afterlife and global fame as a martyr of Africa’s liberation from colonialism.
