Women, Rice, and War: World War II and Anti-Colonial Politics in Abeokuta, Nigeria

From Alexandra Ricks ’16:

World War II was a global conflict with wide reaching political,
economic, and social impact. Professor Judith Byfield (Associate
Professor at Cornell University) will speak to the central role that
Africans played during World War II and the effect of those
experiences on anti-colonial politics. She will focus specifically on
agricultural production for the war effort in Nigeria, the role of
women in those mobilization efforts, and their political actions
emerging from the war.

Professor Byfield recently co-edited Africa and World War II (2015)
and is also the author of The Bluest Hands: A Social and Economic
History of Women Indigo Dyers in Western Nigeria (2002). She is a
former president of the African Studies Association. She currently
serves on the editorial board for the Journal of Women’s History and
is on the advisory board for the Journal of African History.

Light of the East—The Beauty of Movement in Silence

PSA from the College of East Asian Studies:

Prominent Korean digital artists Youngho Kim and Jisong Lee examine
the “beauty of movement in silence” through photography and video in
their first exhibition outside Korea. Both artists build on their long
careers in fashion and commercial work to create works that examine
the core principals hiding behind what we see, and provide an opening
to re-explore, in a contemporary light, the topic of whether the world
that we are living in is a dream.

Date: Wednesday, February 3rd – Sunday, May 22nd
Time: 12:00 PM- 4:00 PM
Place: College of East Asian Studies Gallery
