IHS Workshop: "The Indian Ocean as a 'Zone of Peace', 1955-1979" by Dr. Christopher Lee, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Mon, October 29, 2012 • 12:00 PM - 1:30 AM • GAR 4.100

Christopher Lee received his Ph.D. in African History from Stanford University in 2003. He is an Assistant Professor of History at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. His main interests include the socio-cultural, political, and intellectual histories of sub-Saharan Africa, and what it means to be "modern.” His current work centers on the global repercussions of the Cold War for the Indian Ocean region, particularly the instability of the concept of a “zone of peace” and the nuclear testing and “gunboat diplomacy” that shattered this image.
