Interview with Laura Grillo!
We are pleased to share that Dr. Elisa Prosperetti chose AASR member Laura Grillo’s book, An Intimate Rebuke: Female Genital Power in Ritual and Politics in West Africa (Duke UP 2018), to feature in the Podcast New Books Network. A historian specializing in modern Africa with particular knowledge of Côte d’Ivoire, Elisa was a keen and informed interviewer. It will be sure to draw attention to the book’s timely theme: The postmenopausal ‘Mothers’ deploy their spiritual power to decry immoral leadership and demand justice, without which there can be no peace!
