Invitation to 2nd CHUSS seminar

This is to invite you to the second CHUSS seminar scheduled to take place on 27th April, 2018.

Presenter:    Dr. Virginie Tallio, Research Fellow, Makerere Institute of Social Research (MISR)

Topic:   Public Health and State Building in Post-War Context. The use of Vaccination Policies in the Huambo Province (Angola)

Dr Virginie Tallio explores how public health policies are used by the State to (re)gain legitimacy, taking the example of vaccination policies in Angola.

Angola was torn by a civil war for more than thirty years and the government has deployed diverse strategies to reconquer the country, understood both as territory and population. Dr Tallio analyzes how vaccination programs have been successful in that respect. Four non-medical purposes of vaccination policies, respectively to map the territory, to regulate the nurse, to create and discipline motherhood, and to integrate the Angolan health system into the global one, are emphasized in order to understand the processes leading to an embodiment of the Nation.

This seminar transcends Gender studies, Post-conflicts studies, and Medical anthropology.

Title: Charcoal Power: The Political Violence of Non-Fossil Fuel in Uganda

The politics of global energy are subject to increasing academic interest. Most work focuses on oil, based upon a normative vision of an energy modernity of fossil fuels and a coming transition to renewable energy. In most African countries, however, the most prevalent source of energy is not oil, but woodfuel. Charcoal is of particular importance due to its centrality to urbanization: charcoal is the primary energy source for up to 80% of urban Africa, and its consumption is expected to continue increasing with expanding urbanization. This work-in-progress explores the politics of charcoal through an in-depth study of charcoal extraction in northern Uganda. The paper argues that, by placing charcoal in its political and historical context, we can understand its extraction as a continuation of the violence of the twenty-year northern war. By focusing on the political violence of energy, the orthodox academic and policy narrative about the charcoal industry in Africa can be called into question, as can broader narratives of energy modernity and global energy politics.
