The Dummy Men - On Asmerom Legesse's Study of the Gada System

The Dummy Men - On Asmerom Legesse's Study of the Gada System

Going up a day later than it should have is our second entry into the dummy men series which will consist of one-to-one chats on the topics of decoloniality, white supremacy and antiblackness as they relate to the particular experience and position of the the speakers' background. In this pod we speak on the seminal 1973 text written by Harvard Emeritus Professor Asmerom Legesse on his expansive study of the Oromo in Southern Ethiopia entitled Gada: Three Approaches to the Study of African Society.

Please refer to the material below for an introduction to the work of Levi-Strauss and the relevant texts by Professor Asmerom and Wynter.

Don't fall for the dummy man!
