Great New Books in the Humanities: Learning Zulu

Event Description:

Join us for a discussion of Mark Sanders’ new book, Learning Zulu, which combines elements of analysis and memoir to explore a complex cultural history. Guided by his own endeavors to learn the language, this book investigates the psychopolitics of more than a century of attempts by non-native speakers to learn Zulu.
