Zachary Kagan Guthrie is a historian of modern southern Africa, focusing on Mozambique.

He is the author of Bound for Work: Labor, Mobility, and Colonial Rule in Southern Africa (University of Virginia Press), which examines struggles over the mobility of workers in colonial Mozambique. He has also published articles the Journal of Southern African Studies, African Economic History, International Journal of Labor and Working Class History, and International Journal of African Historical Studies. He is currently working on a history of social debates in Mozambique during the 1960s, examining how readers and writers put forth different visions of Mozambique’s future in the pages of Voz Africana, a newspaper published in the city of Beira.
