Anne-Maria B Makhulu
Assistant Professor of Cultural Anthropology and African & American Studies
Anne-Maria Makhulu is an Assistant Professor of Cultural Anthropology and African and African American Studies at Duke
University. She received her Ph.D. in Anthropology from the University of Chicago in 2003. Her research interests cover: Africa
and more specifically South Africa, cities, space, globalization, political economy, occult economies, neoliberalism, Marxism,
anthropology of finance, as well as questions of aesthetics, including the literature and cinema of South Africa. She recently
completed work on a book manuscript entitled "The Geography of Freedom: Revolution and the South African City" (under
review). The project examines the status and meaning of the South African city under apartheid and immediately after the
transition to democracy focusing on the ways in which matters of citizenship, labor, and race critically intersected with the
“urban,” and thereby came to constitute it as a strategic space in which marginal subjects, specifically, the black metropolitan
poor, sought to make claims on the apartheid state. Makhulu is a contributor to Producing African Futures: Ritual and
Reproduction in a Neoliberal Age (2004), and New Ethnographies of Neoliberalism (2010). She is a co-editor of Hard Work,
Hard Times: Global Volatility and African Subjectivities (2010).
