“The Dregs of the Mau Mau Barrel”: Permanent Exile and the Remaking of Late Colonial Kenya, 1954–61 

Very excited to see the publication of my latest article, with the Journal of Social History. It examines the practice of exile in 1950s Kenya, as thousands of Mau Mau suspects were despatched to the far-flung corners of the Colony. It places these practices into a theories of legal exception and a history of exile in the British Empire. The work is primarily based on archival research in the Kenyan National Archive, as well as plenty of new material from the Migrated Archives series in the UK National Archives. See it here!
