Adom Getachew is a Political Scientist at the University of Chicago. Her first book Worldmaking After Empire: The Rise and Fall of Self-Determination has been celebrated as a landmark achievement in rethinking the structural racism of the international system. Getachew is also author of an op-ed for the Boston Review on the unraveling of imperial power and the case for reparations.
