Current Research:

I currently work on the everyday lives of young Kenyan African men growing up under British colonialism. I explore their efforts to earn a living and challenge generational and colonial authority, as well as articulate and fulfill a sense of moral and material maturity. I specifically focus on the migrant wage labor, street life, delinquency, and armed rebellion of young men against the colonial state.
