Monrovia Modern: Urban Form and the Political Imagination in Liberia

Monday, September 18, 2017 - 1:30pm

When the war in Liberia ended in 2003, hundreds of male combatants occupied the ruins of that West African nation's capital, Monrovia.  In "Monrovia Modern," anthropologist Danny Hoffman explores how ex-combatants occupied the urban forms of this post-war city, and what that occupation suggests about the urban future.


Danny Hoffman is an Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Washington.  He received his Ph.D. in Cultural Anthropology from Duke University in 2004.
