I am an associate professor of history at Texas Tech University, focusing on African history. I am currently a Fulbright Scholar in Tanzania, linked with the University of Iringa, and author of an upcoming short biography of independent Tanzania’s first president, Julius Nyerere, for Ohio Short Histories of Africa series, and Building a Peaceful Nation: Julius Nyerere and the Establishment of Sovereignty in Tanzania, 1960-1964.

You can listen to my interview with Mireille Djenno, talking about my book and background here at the New Books Network (and please donate to support their good work in disseminating new ideas).
