The scope of Northwestern’s renowned Herskovits library is as wide and diverse as the continent of Africa itself. Join its curator, Esmeralda Kale for a look at objects in the collection that inspired Kader Attia’s research. Members of AfriSem, a consortium of graduate students focused on African Studies, will also explore  intertwined  areas  of  Attia’s  research—architecture,  psychopathology,  and  prosthetics—taking materials from the Library as a point of departure.
