Paul Landau provides context and background for current news about ISIS enslaving Iraqi women and Boko Haram kidnapping girls in Nigeria. Dr. Landau, a professor at the University of Maryland, is a historian of culture and politics in southern Africa. His recent book, Popular Politics in the History of South Africa, 1400 to 1948 (Cambridge University Press, 2010), was shortlisted for the Herskovits prize for best work in African studies for 2010. His recent work includes a chapter on the radicalism of 1918 for a history of the ANC’s newspaper, Abantu-Batho; and before that, a chapter called “Transformations in Consciousness,” for the Cambridge History of South Africa (2010). He is co-editor and part author of Images and Empires: Visuality in Colonial and Postcolonial Africa (Univ. of Cal., 2002), and coeditor of the African Historical Review (Pretoria). Since 2011, he has also been a Fellow in Historical Studies at the University of Johannesburg.
