Broadly construed, Natacha Nsabimana’s research and teaching interests include law and subjectivity, postcolonial critique, musical movements and the cultural and political worlds of African peoples on the continent and the diaspora.

Nsabimana’s current project focuses on the relationships of historico-political events of the past to the present and the anticipated future. Her book manuscript looks at the everyday aftermath of violence in post-genocide Rwanda, that is, the ways in which the 1994 genocide against Tutsi occupies the spatial memory of the country’s landscape and the kinds of individual and national narratives such memory allows and disavows.
