Nigeria Slides

Submitted by on June 11, 2015 – 8:29 am One Comment |  
Nigeria Population MapDear Readers,

My final lecture on the history and geography of current global events focused on Nigeria; the slides from this lecture are available at the link below.

Next week I will resume regular GeoCurrents posts. The first of these will look at issues related to Nigeria’s recent election, reflecting some of these lecture slides. Subsequently, I hope to examine Turkey’s recent election and then move on to a wide variety of other topics.

    Another good one. Given the very interesting election this semester, my twentieth-century history class spent three or four classes discussing Nigeria as our example of postwar decolonization and the problems of newly independent states. I had the class read Mr Achebe’s A Man of the People, which I highly recommend, not only because it is hilarious, but because it provoked quite perceptive discussions among undergraduates.
