Mauro Nobili - "The Tarikh al-fattash and the Making of the Caliphate of Hamdallahi"
Contrary to what is commonly believed, the Tārīkh al-fattāsh, one of the most famous sources for pre-colonial African history, is a nineteenth-century chronicle. The talk analyses the chronicle in the landscape of nineteenth century Islamic West Africa as a political project in legitimization of the Caliphate of Ḥamdallāhi (1818-1862).
