Author Talk: Burkina Faso – Nothing Will Be As Before

Author Talk: Nothing will be as before

UPPSALA | Tuesday 29th May at 19.00

Author Talk: NOTHING WILL BE AS BEFORE

Join us for professor Sten Hagberg’s knowledge­able and inspiring talk about a changing ­Burkina Faso, as the country makes a break with its authoritarian past.

Nothing Will Be As Before is the result of ethnographic research on socio-­political transformations in Burkina Faso. With the popular insurrection in October 2014 that ousted President Blaise Compaoré from power, this country marks a break with its authoritarian past. Burkina Faso is engaged in democratic renewal, at the same time as political continuity is evident.

Free, but sign up at the bookshop (limited seating) or by email: uppsalaevents@bookshop.se

Refreshments & snacks served.

In co-operation with Uppsala Forum for Africa Studies at Uppsala University.
