Building African Citizenship: Independent Mali and Post-Imperial France

I plan to write a history of the creation of new political communities—and the construction of African citizenship—in the last years of French colonial rule in West Africa (1946-60) and in the first years of Mali’s independence under a ‘radical’ regime (1960-68). This research agenda has two separate axes, the first being an analysis of the construction of citizenship in an international context through an exploration of Malian migration to France. The second axis considers political membership through the discipline and coercion generated and endured by citizens and other political subjects under late colonial and ‘revolutionary’ rule. I am seeking support for travel to France and Mali to pursue research on immigration (the first axis).
