She will present Who cooks and who eats? Artists as cultural brokers in Ugandan election campaigns. 

A week in advance, the presenter’s paper will be circulated through the Harvard African Studies Workshop listserv. It is assumed that everyone has read the paper before the workshop.  After presentation and commentary, Workshop attendees are invited to engage in critique and discussion, under the moderation of the Workshop Chairs.

This event is part of Worldwide Week at Harvard, which celebrates and showcases Harvard’s global presence and educational opportunities that extend beyond the Cambridge and Boston campuses.
