roundtable event

The African Studies Program invites you to attend their first event of the semester, "A Roundtable with the 2017 IWP Residents from Africa." This event will take place on Wednesday, October 18, 2017 from 12-1:30 p.m. in 2390 UCC (University Capitol Centre). 

How do current political events affect the lives of writers in Africa? 

Living in vibrantly multi-lingual cultures, how do they choose the languages in which they write? And how do creative writers contribute to collective remembrance and collective forgetting in Africa? 

These are some of the questions that will be discussed in an informal roundtable setting by the 2017 International Writing Program Residents from Africa.

This event is sponsored by the African Studies Program and International Programs.
