Timbuktu Talk at New York University

On Wednesday, April 11th, I was joined by professors Ousmane Kane and Michael Gomez for a discussion about West Africa’s scholarly tradition.

Thank you to everyone who made it such a thought-provoking event!!

The event was co-sponsored by New York University’s Elmer Holmes Bobst Library, Middle Eastern & Islamic Studies Department, History Department, Africana Studies Department, and Medieval & Renaissance Center, with support from Long Island University’s Palmer School of Library and Information Science.
