Aderinto’s work wins Nigerian Studies Association book award

“When Sex Threatened the State,” a research work by Saheed Aderinto, has won the Nigerian Studies Association’s Book Award for the most important scholarly book/work on Nigeria published in the English language during 2015.

Aderinto, associate professor of history, was notified of the award late last year. The book was the subject of a panel discussion at the 58th annual meeting of the African Studies Association in San Diego in 2015.

A review of “When Sex Threatened the State” published in the American Historical Review says: “This book makes important inroads in the history of sexuality and gender, childhood, urban history, colonialism, the militar, and the history of medicine in Africa and in 20th-century world history.”
