Africa intertwined

With Andreas Greiner
4 Nov 2018 | Johann Jacobs Museum | GE

Beads entered the African continent on caravan routes and became part of everyday life. How do we do historical research when our object of study is volatile and left almost no traces that come close to what we call “document”? With Andreas Greiner, Chair for History of the Modern World, ETH Zurich and Roger M. Buergel, Director JJM.

Theme Talk on the occasion of the exhibition L’Afrique des Colliers: Marie-José Crespin.
