“Jah Kingdom: Rastafarians, Tanzania, and Pan Africanism in the Age of Decolonization”
Monique A. Bedasse is assistant professor of history and African and African American studies at Washington University in St. Louis. Professor Bedasse specializes in Modern Caribbean history, the African diaspora, Modern Africa and transnational history. Broadly, her research interests include the intellectual, political and social history of decolonization, black internationalism and African diasporic politics. Her current book project, Jah Kingdom: Rastafarians, Tanzania and Pan-Africanism in the Age of Decolonization (University of North Carolina Press, August 2017), uses Rastafarian repatriation to Tanzania to examine the transnational politics of pan-African ideas and praxis following the rise of independent nation-states across the Caribbean and Africa.
