Weekly Lecture Series: Kenya at Fifty, every Wednesday until July 11 2012 @ Goethe
This series of 12 weekly lectures, convened by Professor Karega Munene and organised in cooperation with the Ford Foundation, takes stock of Kenya’s cultural, social, economic, political and intellectual growth in relation to governance and treatment of human rights since independence in 1963. During this period Kenya has had three presidents – the late Jomo Kenyatta, Daniel arap Moi, and currently H.E. Mwai Kibaki – whose styles of leadership have impacted on the lives of Kenyans differently, thus providing us with invaluable lessons that require documentation if they are to serve the country as she faces the future.
The lectures will cover Socio-Economic and Political History of Kenya; Heritage and Social Memory; Education and Management of the State; National Health: Curative and Preventive Approaches; The Economy: Formal and Informal Sectors; Education and Knowledge Economy; English, Kiswahili and Sheng Languages; Literature, Music and Dance; Culture and Religion; The Family as Microcosm of Kenyan Identity; and Sustainable Agriculture and Environmental Management.
