Ways of Writing: Creative Knowledge Production in African Studies

On 18 April 2021, a devastating fire destroyed large parts of the Jagger Library at the University of Cape Town and with it, the African Studies Special Collection. Thousands of precious books, personal archives, manuscripts, and one of the most extensive African film collections in the world were lost.

Curators Jade Nair and Dr. Duane Jethro join us to discuss how "Of Smoke and Ash: Jagger Library Memorial Exhibition" commemorates this loss, celebrates the efforts of volunteers who joined the salvage project and invites new questions for creative practices and African Studies.

This event will take place in-person, at the Forum eikones, Rheinsprung 11, Basel on 3 June 2022 between 13 – 14h30.

Drinks and snacks will be provided. For zoom participation, please use the following link:https://unibas.zoom.us/j/69463619625
