Dear readers, supporters, contributors and friends of EVC,

 

 

We are happy to be able to share the latest news on the EVC network with you: The website design was refreshed with new tabs on the ribbon to help you navigate the website. New objects were added to the collection, a Zine project was initiated and the Ghanaian-German transcultural textbook has promise. As always, fruitful EVC meetings expand the shape of the network.

 

Thank you to all contributors who assisted in expanding our collaboration. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any suggestions or exciting project proposals you may have.

 

Best regards,


Avi, Ernst and Tina on behalf of the EVC team
