Event description

Description

This event is jointly organised by the LSE Middle East Centre and the Society for Algerian Studies.

In different ways, legacies of Islamic reform have profoundly impacted the politics and societies of North and West Africa. In this lecture, Andrew Lebovich examines the largely unexplored connections in the colonial and postcolonial era between reformist Muslims in Algeria and West Africa, the impact of these ties on the development of regional Islamic reform, and what they might say about Algeria's sometimes fraught relationship with the rest of Africa.


Speaker: Andrew Lebovich, Columbia University
Chair: John King, Society for Algerian Studies


About the speaker:

Andrew Lebovich is a visiting fellow with the European Council on Foreign Relations, and is also completing his PhD in African History at Columbia University. His research focuses on contemporary North and West Africa, with a particular emphasis on religion, politics, and society in postcolonial Algeria, Mali and Niger.
