Africa Table Speaker Series

February 21, 2020 - 12:00pm to April 24, 2020 - 1:30pm
Student Union

We are excited to present an Africa series of talks to connect the community of people studying Africa or working in Africa -- including students, faculty, staff, and the wider Tucson community. We believe that with the exchange of information and building a diverse community of scholars focused on topics related to Africa, we can leverage our unique experiences to learn from each other and productively engage with topics about Africa.

This Africa Table Speaker Series is free and open to the public.  Light refreshments will be provided.

January 31, 2020: Student Union/Copper Room - Title: Range Reseeding and Pastoralists Resilience to Climate Variability by Diana Githu.
