Over the Spring Break, Todd Cleveland traveled to the Twin Cities to deliver invited lectures at both the University of Minnesota (Minneapolis) and Macalaster College (St. Paul).  The former was part of the Workshop on the Comparative History of Women, Gender, and Sexuality series and was entitled "I Worked Because the Company Needed Me": African Women's Labor on the Diamond Mines of Colonial Angola, 1917-75, while the latter talk was entitled Angola's Bloody Diamonds: A Long History of Violence, Abuse, Conflict and International Inaction.  Both papers were predicated on oral and archival research Todd conducted for his recently completed dissertation, which is a social history of diamond mining in colonial Angola (1917-75).
