Here in Bergen, the second week in May is proving most active in matters of Sudanological interest!
The second part of the Aurora collaboration between the Center for Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies of the University of Bergen and the Institute du Monde Arabe of the University of Paris is taking place. Tomorrow, at 12:15, begins the main seminar, titled “Contesting Archives: Colonial and oral sources in Northeast Africa” and presented by Elena Vezzadini (post-doc research fellow at UiB) and Silvia Bruzzi (post-doc research fellow at Paris).
By the time it ends (ca. 14:00) there will remain just three hours before professionals and amateurs of Northeast Africa gather again at the University premises (this time at Sydneshaugen skole) for an event about the Jews along the Nile, combining short presentations and a unique cinematographic experience:
Looking forward to enjoying it all and we hope that those in Bergen join in!
