For the ODS Annual Lecture 2023, Professor Lyn Ossome examines concerns around the structures, trajectories and gendered outcomes of capitalist development in the agrarian south, with the aim also of outlining a feminist decolonial critique of economic development. Professor Ossome specializes in the fields of feminist political economy and political theory, and has research interests in gendered labour, land and agrarian studies, the modern state and the political economy of gendered violence. She is the author of Gender, Ethnicity and Violence in Kenya’s Transitions to Democracy: States of Violence (2018) and co-editor of the Labour Questions in the Global South (2021).
