Join New College for a hybrid lunch & learn panel with New College’s Senior Doctoral Fellows (SDF), Moses Karanja of the African Studies Centre and Andrew Young of Centre of Caribbean Studies, part of the 2023-2024 SDF Speaker Series.

Moses will be presenting "Karigi and Equb in Memoriam? Financial Inclusion, Cashless Inevitability, and the Supposed March towards Digital Africa," which will trace the epistemic trajectory of the claim that digital technologies are the necessary development bridge in African countries and Andrew will sketch the outline to an alternative theory of capitalism, based on libidinal economy, drawing on the work of Haitian lawyer Symphor Linstant (later created Baron de Pradine) in his presentation, "Symphor Linstant de Pradine: A Haitian Critique of Capitalism"

Moderated by African Studies Centre Director: Marieme Lo and Kevin Edmonds, PhD student in Political Science.
