Andrew Ivaska (Ph.D. Michigan) is a historian of modern Africa with research interests that center on Africa’s place in the 20th century world. He is the author of Cultured States: Youth, Gender, and Modern Style in 1960s Dar es Salaam (Duke University Press, 2011), which won the Bethwell A. Ogot Prize, awarded by the African Studies Association for the best book in Eastern African Studies. His new book project, Liberation Itineraries: Dar es Salaam, Political Exile, and the Making of the 1960s, reconfigures the global map of Sixties political activism from the vantage point of one of its key Third World relay stations. Tanzania’s capital hosted an extraordinary range of political exiles in these Cold War years – from Southern African liberation movement cadres, to African American sojourners, Marxist academics, and revolutionary chancers. Tracing the networks that fed into, intersected within, and stretched beyond Dar es Salaam, the project opens up a more emergent history of “global Sixties” political engagement, one attuned to the capacious connections, everyday modes of practice, and socio-material infrastructures through which movements rose and fell.
