Zimbabwe Cooperation, Visit November 2021

Simbabwe Kooperation Visit

In late November 2021, Nico Nassenstein and Humboldt fellow Prof. Sambulo Ndlovu organized a visit to GZU Masvingo in Zimbabwe in order to prepare the ground for a memorandum of understanding between JGU Mainz and the Zimbabwean university, and potentially also with participation of Goethe University Frankfurt. The delegation was received by the Vice-Chancellor of the university and a symposium was organized in honor of this first official visit. Together with the DAAD representative in Zimbabwe, Dr. Wolfram Full, Ndlovu and Nassenstein followed an invitation to diffuse the ideas around future cooperations across different media, such as the campus radio Masvingo. The fact-finding mission was generously funded with support by the ZIS (Zentrum für Interkulturelle Studien).
