The Australian Web Archive is a momentous achievement – but things will get harder from here

The National Library of Australia has just launched its Australian Web Archive – a massive, freely accessible collection of content that provides a historical record of the development of world wide web content in Australia over more than two decades.

One important topic concerns the textile trade - here are some citations on that topic, and also on a couple of other issues that involve women.

Re: Developing a course on Asia and Africa encounters

Hello Dr. Simonson,

Perhaps you can look at aid development from African countries to Korea after the Korean War.
You can also look at the role of the silk road trade and its influence on the African coastal states identity by visiting the UNESCO.
In contemporary terms, you can look at soft power from Asia middle powers and greats powers towards African states.

Developing a course on Asia and Africa encounters

Dear H-Africa colleagues,

I have to prepare a new university course at Vilnius University (BA level) on Africa and Asia encounters both from historical and contemporary perspectives.

I am seeking advice on the key topics, which are a must to include, as well as suggested literature for the course.

Thank you,

Dr. Karina Simonson



Re: Comparative Indigeneities

Course Update:

First of all, thank you to everyone that replied to my call for help. I will be responding to your emails soon. Apparently, there was a mix-up in the department, and someone forgot to mention to me that another instructor is already teaching a very similar class next semester. Needless to say, I will not be teaching this course after all, but there's a silver lining in that at least I have a better idea on how to develop this course if I'm ever given the opportunity to do so. Again, thank you to all who reached out to me.
