Yuka Suzuki is an Associate Professor of Anthropology at Bard College. Her research focuses on the cultural politics of nature and the nonhuman, race, whiteness, and postcolonial belonging in Southern Africa. She will present Cecil the Lion and the Stardom of Charismatic Species.

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.
