Four years ago, the then Department of African Languages & Literature convened a lively retrospective assessment of the first half-century of African languages and literature instruction at UW Madison, and in part, explored new directions and best practices for language and culture instruction going forward. A lot of conscientious hard work by faculty, staff, and students has been going on since then.

Professor Katrina Daly Thompson will be participating in this roundtable, discussing her research on the (mis-)representations of Swahili speakers in textbooks and her development of online Swahili materials about gender and sexuality focused on not only queering our understanding of Swahili culture but also making learning materials of greater relevance to all Swahili-learners, including LGBT students.
