Abosede George will be discussing ideas that form her forthcoming book: Romana’s Return: A Journey from Brazil to Lagos, 1899, in Lagos July 24, 2022.

Romana’s Return is a work-in-progress with a self-explanatory title.

The author’s conversation with Aduke Gomez takes place at the Onikan House, 23, Military Street, Onikan and starts at 5pm.

A Tow associate professor of history and African studies at the Columbia University, George is a historian of Modern Africa, whose research is focused on the histories of Lagos, Nigeria, and West Africa, and on social history and urban history within that. Her current research examines Lagos as a destination and a place of convergence for migrant diasporic and refugee communities from the mid to late 19th century. She joined the faculty of Barnard College and Columbia University in 2007.

At Barnard and Columbia, George teaches undergraduate and graduate courses on African urban history, the history of childhood and youth in Africa, women, gender, and sexuality in African History, and African migrations since the mid-20th century.

The event is hosted/organized by Loving Lagos Limited in cooperation with Yxora Resources

Professor George’s earlier book, Making Modern Girls: A History of Girlhood, Labor, and Social Development received the Aidoo-Snyder Book Prize in 2015 from the Women’s Caucus of the African Studies Association, as well as Honorable Mention from the New York African Studies Association.

Her essays have appeared in the American Historical Review, the Journal of Social History, Comparative Studies in South Asia, Africa, and the Middle East, Meridians, Women’s Studies Quarterly, the Journal of West African History, and The Washington Post among other outlets.
