China in Africa

By bentonscholars on April 16, 2013

BrautigamIn early November 2012, the Benton Scholars classes of 2014 and 2015 brought Deborah Brautigam to campus. Deborah Brautigam, a professor at  Johns Hopkins University, is an expert on China’s growing influence in Africa and the author of “The Dragons Gift: The Real Story of China in Africa.” Professor Brautigam’s visit to Colgate University was a coordinated effort between the Benton Scholars class of 2014, who had traveled to China during the Spring of 2011, and the class of 2015, who traveled to Uganda and Rwanda the following year. These two class years believe that Professor Brautigam’s visit to Colgate brought a piece of their experiences in China, Uganda, and Rwanda back to Hamilton for the benefit of the entire community.
