Horn of Africa Seminar - The role of Eritrean Weekly News in the construction of dual nationalisms

Tuesday 14th November 2017

5:00pm - 7:00pm in the Seminar Room, at the African Studies Centre, 13 Bevington Road, OX2 6LH
Free, all welcome - discussions continue in the pub after the lecture.

The Horn of Africa Seminar have organised a discussion & book launch for Woldeab Woldemariam: A Visionary Eritrean Patriot, A Biography by Dawit Mesfin.

As a journalist and activist in the 1940s and ‘50s, Woldeab Woldemariam (1905-1995) is acclaimed by Eritreans as the father of their national movement. Surviving numerous assassination attempts, he not only fashioned Eritreans’ agenda for liberation but also became the finest writer of Tigrinya.

More information can be found on the African Studies Centre website.

The Horn of Africa Seminar brings together students and scholars interested in examining the region from a multidisciplinary and comparative perspective. This term, the seminar will look at a variety of issues, including Israel’s involvement in Sudan’s early civil war, Islamist violence in Kenya and patterns of state formation and decay across the Horn of Africa. By hosting lectures by experienced researchers alongside post-graduates, and by mixing academic and policy research, we hope to come to a shared, factually informed and politically relevant understanding of trends in the region.
