Rebecca Wall.
Visiting Assistant Professor of History Rebecca Wall published an article, “1970s Drought, State Crisis, and Opportunities for Transnational River Development in the Senegal Basin,” in the December issue of African Studies Review.

Wall's contribution offers a challenge to historical scholarship that sees drought as overwhelmingly destructive to African state capacity. Her careful reading and innovative methodology reveal that fear of famine ushered in a new prioritization of agriculture and multi-state collaborations.

African Studies Review is the flagship scholarly journal of the African Studies Association (USA), and publishes the highest quality African studies scholarship in all academic disciplines.
