In a 2001 book Making history in Banda. Anthropological visions of Africa’s past I worked toward the dual goals of bringing to view the processes of history making in the present at the same time as illuminating something of the character of the ‘lived past’ in contexts when Banda villagers were participating in shifting global networks. Though I have long shared research results with local authorities, in summer 2011 I endeavoured to broaden community outreach around our research project by producing a series of posters intended to communicate project results to local communities. In this seminar I describe those outreach activities, their reception, and their implications for making history in Banda, 2011.
