Endangered histories: the role of the deep past in the making of modern Uganda

This project will use Uganda as a case study to examine the role of the deep, pre-colonial past in the shaping of politics and society from the 19th century to the present. It will explore Uganda's intellectual development; the changing nature and role of history in its formal education; and the uses of the deep past by politicians and others. It will ultimately assess the role of history in modern Africa vis-a-vis the developmental agendas and notions of economic growth against which African progress and prospects are measured.
