Join us for Professor Sten Hagberg’s knowledgeable and inspiring talk about a changing
Burkina Faso, as the country makes a break with its authoritarian past. The book 'Nothing will be as before': Anthropological perspectives on political practice and democratic culture in 'a new Burkina Faso'.
Nothing Will Be As Before is the result of ethnographic research on socio-political
