“This is an expansive, but nuanced, and thought provoking study of female nakedness as political intervention around Africa. Naked Agency offers a rich analysis of the many potential meanings of defiant disrobing as a signifying shorthand, in relation to questions of agency within, but also potentially outside an African context.”

Moradewun Adejunmobi, coeditor of
