Focus on Africa -September 2017

You are cordially invited to attend a blitz presentation and discussion event for the International Working Group affiliated with the Life Sciences and Society Program (LSSP), Bond Life Sciences Center. For the third year in a row, we are continuing with the theme of FOCUS ON AFRICA. 

The purpose of LSSP International Working Group is to encourage MU scholars with international interest to meet each other, stimulate each other’s thinking, and potentially lead to the creation of broader research network and joint scholarship. Topics across the year are chosen to highlight the intersection among multiple disciplinary perspectives with a common geographical focus; this year’s focus will be on Africa.
