Louisa Lombard, Assistant Professor of Anthropology
March 1, 2017
Professor Lombard is a cultural anthropologist who studies African borderland areas where the state is largely absent, and a range of actors govern. Her research locales, primarily the remote and little-populated eastern reaches of the Central African Republic, are further marked by violent histories that continue into the present. Her main fieldwork interlocutors are among the region’s men-in-arms, such as anti-poaching guards and rebels.
