Christopher Lee smiles in his office

Christopher Lee

Christopher Lee, associate professor of history and Africana studies, recently had a piece published in The Conversation in which he expresses how issues of framing, narration, and analysis have created problematic misrepresentations, resulting in Africa’s long history with China being ignored.

Lee’s academic interests include modern Africa, southern Africa, Indian Ocean studies, Cold War history, historical anthropology, Afro-Asianism, and Black political thought. He has published six books, including Making a World after Empire: The Bandung Moment and Its Political Afterlives, Unreasonable Histories, Frantz Fanon: Toward a Revolutionary Humanism, A Soviet Journey: A Critical Annotated Edition, Jet Lag, and Kwame Anthony Appiah.

Read his entire piece in The Conversation.
