Seminar on the British Library’s African Collections

On 10 November 2016 Dr Marion Wallace, Curator of African Collections at the British Library and former Chair of SCOLMA, will be giving a seminar at the African Studies Centre Leiden on the experience of curating the West Africa exhibition, ‘West Africa: Word, Symbol, Song’, which was held at the British Library from October 2015 to February 2016. The exhibition traced one thousand years of West African history and brought together books, manuscripts, artworks, sound recordings and film. The seminar will also cover the British Library’s African collections in general and explain how researchers can access them.
