His research interests are broadly concentrated around the interactions between Europeans and sub-Saharan Africans during the colonial period and, in particular, labor and social relations between the Portuguese and the indigenous populations in the former’s assortment of African territories. The majority of Todd’s research has focused on the history of diamond mining in Africa, and features in three books: Stones of Contention: A History of Africa’s Diamonds (Ohio University, 2014); Diamonds in the Rough: Corporate Paternalism and African Professionalism on the Mines of Colonial Angola, 1917-75 (Ohio University, 2015); and, co-authored with Jorge Varanda, A Companhia de Diamantes de Angola (Diamang): Fotos que escondem, imagens que mostram (Guerra e Paz, forthcoming).

Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP.
