RUB » Centre for Mediterranean Studies

African RUB established

On the first Africa Day of the Rub on June 21, 2018, organized by the ZMS, the "African RUB" was launched. The "African RUB" is an informal association of RUB staff who in teaching, research and/or publications are concerned with topics related to Africa. "African RUB" is an attractive and unique framework for getting to know each other, exchanging ideas and experiences and working together in many ways – across all epochs, disciplines and faculties!
"African RUB" is meant to serve to make Africa visible at the RUB. With "African RUB" we want to network as people who are interested in Africa and present our work within the RUB as well as to a broader public. Each semester, joint evenings are organized at changing institutes and faculties, which serve the mutual exchange and the presentation of current or completed work and ongoing research projects.
The Center for Mediterranean Studies is pleased to host the meeting in the winter semester 2018/19. At an early stage, we will contact you to make an appointment.
All colleagues at the RUB concerned with Africa in one way or another are cordially invited to participate!
