Come get a coffee break this Monday from 2PM to 3PM at the French House (Haskell) and try delicious croissants and a pear clafoutis !
Come if you’re a French speaker who wants to practice the language in a relaxing atmosphere but also come if you do not speak a word of French, you can still enjoy delicious food and learn more about the francophone culture.

Job Talk – History Candidate – Nana Osei-Opare – “Becoming Ghanaian: Race and National Identity in Post-Colonial Ghana, 1957-1966” – Monday, December 3 – Palmer 223 – 3:00 – 4:30pm

On March 6, 1957, the West African country Ghana became the first sub-Saharan African colony to gain its independence from Britain. However, upon independence, what did it mean to be Ghanaian? A Ghanaian national identity had never existed before. British colonialism was the only unifying feature amongst a new country that had approximately a hundred different ethnic groups, with about 250 languages and dialects spoken. Using an array of archival sources from Ghana, Russia, the United Kingdom, and the United States, this talk will argue that transnational and domestic acts of racism against Ghanaians helped forge a Ghanaian national identity.
