Project: Ethnicity in the African Great Lakes Region from a World-Systems Perspective (19th-20th century)
- project duration
- 01-OCT-05 – 26-JUL-10
- We focuss on the interaction between social order, global conditions and representations of ethnicity in the African Great Lakes region (Rwanda, Burundi and Ijwi) in the nineteenth and twentieth century. From a world-systems perspective, the emphasis lays on the long term - before, during and after colonialism - and on the spatial aspect, exceeding the state as an investigation unit.
