State of Rebellion: Violence and Intervention in the Central African Republic

Louisa Lombard, anthropology, Yale University

Bio:

I am a cultural anthropologist who studies African borderland areas where the state is largely absent, and a range of actors govern. My research locales, primarily the remote and little-populated eastern reaches of the Central African Republic (C.A.R.), are further marked by violent histories that continue into the present. How, in such contexts, do people navigate fragile relationships of trust and claim access to resources and authority? My main fieldwork interlocutors are among the region’s men-in-arms, such as anti-poaching guards and rebels.
