SLLC and The Afro-Romance Institute are pleased to announce the upcoming lecture by Dr. Julia Borst, 2021 recipient of the prestigious Heinz Maier-Leibnitz Prize.

According to the German Research Foundation (DFG), Dr. Borst "...is already considered an important point of reference and contributes to anchoring the work of Afro-Hispanic authors – still a very under-researched area – within the field of Romance studies. Borst also made an important contribution to the as yet nascent field of Black Holocaust Studies. The striking features of Borst’s work are her multilingualism, her theoretical and methodological versatility and her dialogue-based, ethically responsible approach."

We hope to see you there!
