Kevin Dunn, assistant professor of political science, recently had his chapter “Identity, Space and the Political Economy of Conflict in Central Africa” published in “The Geopolitics of Resource Wars.” The book, edited by Philippe Le Billon and published by Frank Cass as part of the “Routledge Studies on Geopolitics” series, examines the 'resource curse' affecting many resource-dependent countries and the spaces of misgovernance shaping the violent geopolitics of many raw materials. Dunn's chapter examines the intersection of identity, space, and the political economy of violence in the ongoing war in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Dunn joined the Colleges faculty in 2001. He holds a bachelor's degree from Davidson College, master's degree from Dalhousie University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, and doctoral degree from Boston University. His book “Africa's Challenge to International Relations Theory” (co-edited with Timothy Shaw) was published in 2001.
