Biography

My research engages issues related to empire, law and sovereignty in southeastern Africa. Specifically, I am interested in histories of dispossession, enclosure and border formation between the British and Portuguese Empires in the nineteenth century, and indigenous resistance to these processes.
I have also worked and published on the intellectual history and sociology of knowledge of anthropology and social science in twentieth-century South Africa.
