The Wits City Institute will host Wits City Institute Visiting Research Fellow, Susan Gagliardi, from Emory University to present this special lecture.

The lecture will include a discussion on the subject of Gagliardi's next book, namely the seen and unseen dimensions of West African power association arts and Mapping Senufo, the collaborative born-digital mapping publication that she initiated and is currently developing.

Gagliardi holds a PhD from the University of California, Los Angeles, and her research interests include: historical and present-day arts of West Africa, with focus on arts sponsored by Senufo- and Mande-speaking communities; practices and theories of power and assemblage, of the seen and the unseen, of secrecy, and of masquerade; patronage; museums and display methods.
