Seminar: “African Cities” (Sophie Oldfield, University of Basel)

Please note that this highly attractive course by Prof Sophie Oldfield (professor for Urban Studies at the Universities of Cape Town and Basel) is a block course taking place in the week before the start of the semester. Participants will thus do most of the workload during next week and will then have some written assignments to complete in the course of the semester.

As a block course it offers a wonderful opportunity to engage with a topic and to exchange intensely with fellow students and the lecturer in a quaint atmosphere. Those who would like to enroll for the course shall contact Prof Oldfield directly:
