Admire Mseba was trained as a historian of Sub-Saharan Africa (with secondary fields in the histories of modern Latin America and Africa’s interaction with the Indian Ocean World) at the University of Iowa. He received his PhD in 2015. Admire has research interests in the agrarian, socio-environmental and economic history of Southern and Central Africa. He is currently revising his thesis on social relations, power, and access to land in precolonial and colonial northeastern Zimbabwe into a book. He has also begun research on politics, environmental control and inter-territorial cooperation in late colonial and postcolonial Southern and Central Africa. In addition, Admire has retained his interests in his earlier training in African economic history and is the author of works on the politics of monetary regulation in colonial Zimbabwe.
