in Events/Politics by

Leipzig Events: Asia in the African imaginary and from the perspective of a South African scholar, June 3

It’s the inaugural lecture of Prof. Scarlett Cornelissen, the recently appointed Leibniz Professor at Leipzig University’s Research Academy. It’s entitled “Asia in the African Scholarly Imaginary,” and sounds intriguing to me, so I’ll be there. The lecture starts at 5:15 p.m. and lasts until 6:45 p.m., at the Alter Senatssaal, Ritterstr. 26, 04109 Leipzig. It’s open to the general public.
