Nancy Hunt’s New Book on Violence and Medicine in Colonial Congo

Published: August 31st, 2016

Category: Faculty News, Feature, History Department News, Recent News

The History Department congratulates our new colleague, Dr. Nancy Rose Hunt, on the publication of her book entitled, A Nervous State: Violence, Remedies, and Reverie in Colonial Congo with Duke University Press.  This book draws out the anxiety and resilience of the people of post-colonial Belgian Congo, using medicine as a way to join these seemingly contradictory versions of the “state.”

For more on A Nervous State, please see the press page here.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
