Peter Alegi email@example.com Episode 68 of Africa Past and Present -- the podcast about African history, culture, and politics -- is now available at: http://afripod.aodl.org In this episode, Adam Ashforth (University of Michigan) discusses "witchcraft" in rural Central and urban Southern Africa. He makes connections with colonial and postcolonial power and authority; gender; spiritual insecurity and religious enthusiasm; law, culture, and HIV/AIDS in Malawi; "anti-anti-witchcraft," and the "serious laughter" of photographer Santu Mofokeng. *** Africa Past and Present is hosted by Peter Alegi and Peter Limb and co-produced by Matrix -- the digital humanities center -- and the Department of History at Michigan State University.
