Moyd was trained in eastern African history and wrote her dissertation on the lives of African soldiers in the colonial army of German East Africa (modern day Tanzania). She is currently working on a book project that examines the complex experience, identities, and loyalties of these askari soldiers, developing comparison with troops in Africa’s French and British colonial armies as well.
