Professor Ndubueze Mbah has received a Fellowship from the American Council of Learned Societies, and has also been named an "ACLS Centennial Fellow in the Dynamics of Place" for his second book project, "Rebellious Migrants: Forging Cosmopolitan Identity and Postcolonial Spaces in the Bight of Biafra and West Africa, 1840-1960." His work examines how the social mobility and reintegration politics of nineteenth-century Biafran recaptives, particularly the Liberated Africans that returned from Sierra Leone to Calabar, facilitated postcolonial forms of ethnogeneses in West African territories including Sierra Leone, Nigeria, Equatorial Guinea, and Gabon.
