African Studies Lecture Series-Dr. Kim Yi Dionne

Tuesday, May 12th, the ninth and final lecture this year in the African Studies Lecture Series was given by Dr. Kim Yi Dionne from Smith College. The talk, titled “Political Challenges and Failures in Response to the 2014 Ebola Outbreak” is the third of three lectures this term under the theme of “Global Health in Africa.”

Dr. Kim Yi Dionne is Five College Assistant Professor of Government at Smith College. She studies and teaches African politics, with a focus on the politics of interventions aimed at improving the human condition and recounting the opinions of ordinary Africans toward such interventions. Much of her published research examined HIV/AIDS. Her current book project is on the global response to HIV/AIDS in Africa, with a focus on Malawi, where she was a Fulbright Scholar in 2008-2009. She is a regular contributor to The Washington Post’s Monkey Cage blog on politics and political science.
