Dr. Murillo’s book Market Encounters: Consumer Cultures in Twentieth Century Ghana (2017), from the with Ohio University Press as part of its New African Histories Series, is available now!

In Market Encounters, Bianca Murillo explores the shifting social terrains that made the buying and selling of goods in modern Ghana possible. Fusing economic and business history with social and cultural history, she traces the evolution of consumerism in the colonial Gold Coast and independent Ghana from the late nineteenth century through to the political turmoil of the 1970s.
