The following is a list of all the articles that were published on Ordering Africa: Anthropology, European Imperialism and the Politics of Knowledge (edited by Helen L. Tilley with Robert J. Gordon, 2007), with each reviewing a specific chapter in the volume. In order to maintain equity in the number of written assignments allotted to each student, we excluded the chapter on Switzerland from our written commentaries, though it was included in discussion in the seminar.
