Molly McCullers, Ph.D.

Fields of Study:  Africa, Gender/Masculinity, Environmental History, Race and Identity, Genocide, Memory, Ethnicity, Apartheid, and Advertising

Dr. McCullers' research focuses on water and identity politics in rural Namibia during apartheid. Her current project investigates the ways in which global decolonization and apartheid became entwined with historical discourses and local competitions for scarce natural resources as well as struggles to define and achieve ethnic identities and dominant masculinities. She is also currently researching the culture of the itinerant bore-men and water finders in southern Africa as well as advertising during the apartheid era.
