Janheinz Jahn Symposia
About every four years, the Jahn Library for African Literatures hosts an International Janheinz Jahn Symposium. Each of these symposia is devoted to a central topic in African Literary Studies, most recently, the African bildungsroman (2014), African crime fiction (2008) and creative writing in African languages (2004). Guests always include African writers and scholars. The next Janheinz Jahn Symposium is planned for 2018.
