Kenda Mutongi Named Finalist for Elliott P. Skinner Award

Kenda Mutongi, Member (2004–05) in the School of Social Science, has been named a finalist for the 2018 Elliott P. Skinner Book Award, for Matatu: A History of Popular Transportation in Nairobi (University of Chicago Press, 2017).

Conferred annually by the Association for Africanist Anthropology, the award goes to the book that best furthers both the global community of Africanist scholars and the wider interests of the African continent, as exemplified in the work of Elliott P. Skinner.

Matatu was awarded the Martin A. Klein Prize earlier this year.
