Ethnicity and the making of history in northern Ghana by Carola Lentz( )

14 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing on two decades of research this social and political history of North-Western Ghana traces the creation of new ethnic and territorial boundaries, categories and forms of self-understanding, and represents a major contribution to debates on ethnicity, colonialism and the 'production of history'. It explores the creation and redefinition of ethnic distinctions and commonalities by African and European actors, showing that ethnicity's power derives from a contradiction: while ethnic identities purport to be non-negotiable, creating permanent bonds, stability and security, the boundaries of the communities created and the associated traits and practices are malleable and adaptable to specific interests and contexts."--Jacket
Land, mobility, and belonging in West Africa by Carola Lentz( )

13 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing on an area of the savannah in northern Ghana and southwestern Burkina Faso, Land, Mobility, and Belonging in West Africa explores how rural populations have secured, contested, and negotiated access to land and how they have organized their communities despite being constantly on the move as farmers or migrant laborers. Carola Lentz seeks to understand how those who claim native status hold sway over others who are perceived to have come later. As conflicts over land, agriculture, and labor have multiplied in Africa, Lentz shows how politics and power play decisive roles in determinin
Ethnicity in Ghana : the limits of invention by Palgrave Macmillan Limited( Book )

13 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although African ethnicity has become a highly fertile field to enquiry in recent years, most of the research is concentrated on southern and central Africa, and has passed Ghana by. This volume extends many of the distilled insights, but also modifies them in the light of the Ghanaian evidence. The collection is multidisciplinary in scope and spans the pre-colonial, colonial and post-colonial contexts."--Jacket

Remembering independence by DAVID. LENTZ, CAROLA. RITCHIE, JONATHAN LOWE( )

10 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Remembering Independence explores the commemoration and remembrance of independence following the great wave of decolonisation after the Second World War. Drawing on case studies from Africa, Asia, and with reference to the Pacific, the authors find that remembering independence was, and still is, highly dynamic. From flag-raising moments to the present day, the transfer of authority from colonial rule to independent nation-states has served as a powerful mnemonic focal point. Remembering independence, in state as well as non-state constructions, connects to changing contemporary purposes and competing politic visions. Independence is a flexible idea, both a moment in time and a project, a carrier of hopes and ideals of social justice and freedom, but also of disappointments and frustrated futures. This richly illustrated volume draws attention to the broad range of media employed in remembering independence, ranging from museums and monuments to textual, oral and ritual formats of commemorative events, such as national days. Combining insights from history and anthropology, this book will be essential reading for all students of the history of empire, decolonisation, nation-building and post-colonial politics of memory.' --

Staatsinszenierung, Erinnerungsmarathon und Volksfest : Afrika feiert 50 Jahre Unabhängigkeit by Carola Lentz( Book )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in German and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

2010 feierten siebzehn afrikanische Länder ein halbes Jahrhundert Unabhängigkeit. Die Jubiläen waren eindrucksvolle Beispiele für die Selbstinszenierung afrikanischer Regierungen und Eliten und wurden vielerorts mit bunten Volksfesten zelebriert. Sie eröffneten aber auch Raum für kritische Debatten über die Vergangenheit und die gegenwärtigen Herausforderungen. Das Jahr 1960 ist und bleibt zentraler Bezugspunkt der Erinnerung. Junge Forscherinnen und Forscher der Universität Mainz haben die Jubiläumsfeiern 2010 vor Ort beobachtet und berichten über die komplexe Aushandlung nationaler Identität
