Uncovering archival materials in AM’s Africa and the New Imperialism: European Borders on the African Continent, 1870-1914

In this AM webinar guest speakers discuss the materials in the newly-published database, Africa and the New Imperialism: European Borders on the African Continent, 1870-1914, which documents Africa’s encounters with European imperialist regimes and their impact on the lives of peoples across the continent.

We were joined by Michelle Moyd of Michigan State University, who discussed the violence of colonialism and African resistance through the archival records. In addition, Christopher Prior of the University of Southampton examined what can be learned about the history of European colonisation from the records of the colonists themselves. The speakers share both the value of archival materials and how they relate to their own research.
