Nana Osei-Opare

Special guest

Dr. Nana Osei-Opare is Assistant Professor of African & Cold War History at Fordham University in New York, having received his PhD in History from UCLA in 2019. He is currently working on a manuscript tentatively titled "Socialist Decolony: Ghana’s Cold War, 1957-1966." Socialist Decolony gives the first-ever comprehensive treatment of Ghana-Soviet relations and how those connections shaped Ghana’s political-economy, Pan-African program, and its modalities of citizenship during the Kwame Nkrumah era.

His work has been supported in part by the Office of the President of the University of California, Fulbright-Hays DDRA, UCLA International Institute, and Stanford University’s Hoover Institution Library and Archives. His research has appeared in the Journal of West African History, Journal of African History, The Washington Post, Ufahamu: A Journal of African Studies, and Foreign Policy Magazine, amongst other places.
