Everyone is very welcome!  to join this open, hybrid event, to hear from longstanding friend of the bilateral relationship, Prof Ken Ross about his latest book, which is the first intellectual biography of Alexander Hetherwick, a key figure in Scotland-Malawi relations. Chair: Gift Kayira, Senior Lecturer in History, University of Malawi. Review from Hermann Mvula, Lecturer at UNIMA.

This book, which will be available to SMP members at a 40% discount, includes a fresh account of the dynamics at play in the creation of Malawi as a nation, with special attention to the role played by Scottish missionaries, Hetherwick in particular. Making extensive use of rarely consulted primary sources in Malawi and Scotland, this work presents a critical examination of the way in which Blantyre Mission both absorbed and resisted the prevailing racism and colonialism of the early 20th century.

Monday 15th May starting 3pm (UK time) 4pm (Malawi time)
