Meike de Goede – Matsouanist resistance & independence in Congo-Brazzaville

CTD researcher Meike de Goede wrote a blog about Matsouanist resistance & independence in Congo-Brazzaville for The University of Portsmouth, UK.

Meike de Goede works on silenced history and memory in Congo-Brazzaville and former French Equatorial Africa. In this blog she argues that: “[the case of the Matsouanists] raises questions about how we understand the politics of the era of independence in Africa beyond ethnic politics, mass based nationalist discourses, and indeed beyond anti-colonial resistance”.
