Elisa Prosperetti, Ph.D. Candidate, Princeton University

I am currently a Graduate Fellow at the Princeton Institute for International and Regional Studies, specializing in modern African and global history. My dissertation examines the transnational history of postcolonial education in West Africa, focusing on regional rivals Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire.

With this website, I hope to share some of the work that I have done over the last few years. My most up-to-date CV is available here. My email is elisap@princeton.edu.
