Steven Pierce on State Formation & Political Cultures in Nigeria

Postcolonial Cultures of Corruption Seminar, Leeds Humanities Research Institute Seminar Room 2, 4-6pm, Tuesday 25 October

For our inaugural seminar we are delighted to be able to invite Dr Steven Pierce from the University of Manchester for a discussion of his recent ground-breaking book on the history of corruption in Nigeria, Moral Economies of Corruption: State Formation & Political Cultures in Nigeria (Duke University Press, 2016). Using ethnographic and historical methods the book offers an innovative approach to studying corruption, so often an elusive object to study.

The book is open access and can be accessed here: http://hdl.handle.net/2027/ku01.r2_106

All welcome!
