A very well-accomplished but apparently quite modest fellow glocal will be speaking in Leipzig on Wednesday, 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.
