Nancy Hunt's New Book on Violence and Medicine in Colonial Congo

The History Department congratulates our new colleague, Dr. Nancy Rose Hunt, on the publication of her book entitled, A Nervous State:┬áViolence, Remedies, and Reverie in Colonial Congo with Duke University Press. ┬áThis book draws out the anxiety and resilience of the people of post-colonial Belgian Congo, using medicine as a way to join these seemingly contradictory versions of the “state.”
