African Student Community's annual Symposium: Africa through storytelling

When:We 19-05-2021 10:00 - 15:00

The African Students Community (ASC) Groningen proudly presents to you its biggest and most awaited event of the year – the ASC Symposium 2021, this year themed “Africa Through Storytelling”.

In this symposium we intend to shed a light on the variety of storytelling forms that can be found on the continent and the ways to study them. The transmission of history from generation to generation within the continent differs vastly from that of European history telling with the use of oral traditions. These traditions have not been given as much creedence and focus by historians despite being an important source of information in exploring African history.

Full program and profiles on the guest speakers will follow soon.
