  1. A Comparative Study of Herder-Farmer Conflicts in West Africa

    Moritz, Mark
    In Toda, Niger, in 1991, a mob of angry farmers attacked herders in several villages, killing over 100 people. Eleven years later on the Jos Plateau in Nigeria, tension between Muslim herders and Christian farmers resulted in the destruction of several villages, the deaths of hundreds of people, and the creation of 20,000 refugees. And on the border between Senegal and Mauritania, conflict between farmers and herders in 1989 brought the two countries to the brink of war.

  2. Civic Order and Dispute Resolution in 14th and 15th Century London

    Hanawalt, Barbara
    During the 14th and 15th centuries, London was a city of 40,000 to 60,000 people crowded into one square mile.

  3. American Musicians in Cold War Cultural Diplomacy

    Fosler-Lussier, Danielle
    During the Cold War, the U.S. State Department sent musicians to strategically important regions around the world to enhance the image of American culture.

Despite the importance of the musicians' tours for the development of international cultural contact, no scholar has yet done a thorough analysis of the effects of the State Department’s tour program. Danielle Fosler-Lussier is attempting to do just that with a grant from the Mershon Center supporting the early stages of her research.
