206 Ingraham Hall
Join the African Studies Program for Africa at Noon, a weekly Wednesday event since 1973. In the last 5 years, Lachenal traveled regularly in Cameroon to explore the traces and remains left by a strange medical utopia – songs and memories, ruined buildings and abandoned plantations. This presentation is a reflection on the presences of the colonial past in contemporary Cameroon.
