Trading Value: Resource Specialists and the Formation of Long-Distance Trade Routes in Southern Tanzania before the 1600s

Andrea Felber Seligman, PhD Candidate, Department of History

During 2010-2011 Andrea conducted research in Tanzania and is now writing her dissertation on the relationships between Southern Tanzanian societies and exchange (both local and long distance) before the 1600s. This presentation explores the contributions language evidence can make to questions about the type and direction of pre-1600s trade in Eastern Africa.
