Inhalt This course introduces students hands-on in a key activity of the academic trade, i.e. organizing a conference. Students participating in this course will develop, plan and ultimately run the 2nd European Conference on African Stuides scheduled for 23-25 June 2022. In the framework of this course they will receive an introduction on how a conference functions and the essentials of conference planning but will then work on their own with coaching from members of faculty in African Studies.
