about this item

Based on multi-sited anthropological fieldwork, this book describes how various governmental, intergovernmental and non-governmental actors engage with colonial and post-colonial built heritage found in Eritrea, Tanzania, ****** and the Republic of the Congo, showing how this engagement produces problematizations of ‘the modern’, which ultimately indicate a need to rescue modernity from its dominant conception as an all-encompassing, epochal and spatial culture.
