Brief Bio

Zachary Kagan Guthrie is a historian of modern southern Africa, focusing on central Mozambique. Prior to joining the University of Mississippi in 2014, he received his BA from Wesleyan University and his MA and PhD at Princeton University. He has published two articles in the Journal of Southern African Studies, one on US policy toward the apartheid wars under the Reagan administration and the other on the history of Mozambican workers sent into forced labor exile on the cocoa plantations of S?o Tom?. He is currently working on a history of the impact of political and economic reforms on everyday life in the Mozambican city of Beira during the 1960s and 1970s. His broad teaching and research interests include the history of forced labor, the history of colonial punishment, the history of development projects, and the history of decolonization movements. He also has a methodological interest in the interconnections between public history, historical memory, and the production of academic history.
