The Spring semester is here, and the APERO Brown Bag Lecture will soon begin. We would like to extend an invitation to you to give a lecture this semester. Presenters can be professors, graduate students, or anyone doing work related to Africa.

The lecture is held biweekly on Wednesdays from 12.40 p.m. to 1.30 p.m. in Peabody Hall, room 105. Speakers who are interested in giving a presentation should be aware that they can do so virtually or in person.
