Patience Essah Africana Studies Lecture Series

Dancing with Swords in Kenya

Dr. Daren Ray

Date and Time:  Tuesday, October 18 at 3:30 p.m.

Location:  Ground Floor Auditorium, Ralph Brown Draughon Library

Dr. Daren Ray will present videos of Swahili sword dances recorded during his field research in Kenya.   While most histories of the Swahili emphasize their roles as merchants, this presentation explores how these sword dances and other celebratory rituals open new perspectives on precolonial histories in East Africa.

Dr. Ray is an Assistant Professor of History at Auburn University whose research focusses on the history of identities, ritual, and language in East Africa.   Dr. Ray also had the privilege of studying abroad in South Africa for a summer during college and lived in Egypt while teaching at the American University of Cairo.
