I am a Banting Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for Ethnographic Research and Exhibition in the Aftermath of Violence (CEREV) at Concordia University in Montreal. I received her Ph.D. in Anthropology and History from the University of Michigan. My current book project examines the contested and conflicting constructions of childhood in late apartheid South Africa, from 1976 until the early 1990s when negotiations for the transition to democracy began.
I have conducted extensive fieldwork and archival research in South Africa and Zimbabwe, and have worked on a number of public history projects. I holds a certificate in Museum Studies from the University of Michigan and have curated several exhibits based on my research. I am particularly interested in the intersections of memory, childhood, and violence in postcolonial Africa, and the ways in which they are represented and engaged in contemporary public spheres.
