  10. “Framing Future Africa: A report on new collaborative research in the programme Future rural Africa: future-making and social-ecological transformation

    This presentation provides a short summary of a new collaborative research center (CRC) that has recently been launched at the University of Cologne ("https://www.crc228.de/) and it reports some preliminary findings on the role of framing the future in processes of current land conversions.

    The starting point for the new CRC is the observation of large-scale land conversions in Africa. In some areas large tracks of land are set aside for conservation (for instance the KAZA Transborder Park) while at the same time there are plans for large-scale intensification of land use for agriculture or other forms of resource extraction. In some places both processes take place side-by-side, an example is the KAZA Park that is cut-across by a major highway and development corridor. The new CRC tries to understand these processes in terms of the ways in which ideas about the future make these developments possible and more generally how futures are made for rural Africa. We follow A. Appadurai in distinguishing futures of possibilities from futures of probabilities and we seek to understand these transformations as being both social and ecological, linked across local, national, regional and global scales. In this presentation I shall provide some examples on how the anthropology of time is relevant for the larger research programme as defined by the new collaborative research center.

  11. “Situating Coffee Tourism in Ethiopia”

    This seminar focuses on situating coffee tourism in the context of Ethiopia. Coffee tourism in Ethiopia has much potential in terms of development related to both the tourism and coffee industry. Ethiopia has much to gain from being the birthplace of Arabica coffee and for producing its fine coffee. Ethiopia also has a wealth of coffee-related narratives, which could add greatly to coffee tourism contents. This seminar argues that if existing tourism attractions in Ethiopia could be linked with Ethiopian fine coffee or other coffee resources such as the coffee ceremony or the Ethiopian coffee legend, coffee tourism in Ethiopia could play a significant role in the development of both the tourism and coffee sectors. Furthermore, successful coffee tourism systems in Ethiopia may also inspire a movement in other coffee-growing countries. Although attracting tourists by means of coffee alone may prove difficult, if coffee could be combined with other contemporary tourism attractions, coffee tourism could be a viable form of tourism activity. In this seminar, I would like to explore various coffee tourism practices in Ethiopia based on my fieldwork.

  12. “Violence and Governance in Guerrilla War”

    Guerrilla war requires careful coordination between rebels and the local population. Yet, many groups fighting for liberation and ‘power to the people’ also attack and oppress the people. This paper examines why insurgents use violence against those whose support they seek. I begin by explaining how violence and governance are intimately connected in civil war, despite being examined in prevailing literature as ontologically distinct categories. Both state and non-state armed groups try to assert control over social, economic, and political resources through militarized governance. As a result, force is embedded in the power struggles and authority contestations that characterize daily life in a war zone. The targeting patterns and spatial diffusion of violence cannot be understood through lenses of opportunism or information asymmetry alone. Rather, the logic of power and policing within insurgent organizations motivates the use and forms of force outside it. Using a few hundred interviews with ex-combatants and civilians, and a large set of rebel governance archives from the Revolutionary United Front of Sierra Leone, I demonstrate that patterns of violence against civilians reflect discourses of control, discipline, and obedience in pursuit of organizational power, not simply principal-agent decay. The nexus of formal laws and informal order make violent governance a much more pervasive strategy than has been previously been acknowledged in literature on guerrilla warfare.
