Quest University History Professor Andre Lambelet speaks on “The Belgian Congo in the Global Context” on November 17. Lambelet’s scholarship focuses on colonialism, war, and intellectual and cultural history.
“The Belgian Congo was one of the worst examples of colonial exploitation in Africa,” said History Professor Hazel Hahn, Pigott McCone Chair in Humanities. “Its history provides valuable lessons and insights that are relevant today.”
Lambelet, who has lived in Japan, France, Switzerland, the United States, Australia, and Belgium and speaks fluent French, received his doctorate from the University of California, Berkeley.
Lambelet’s presentation, which is free and open to the public, takes place on November 17 at 10:15 a.m. in room 220, Administration Building.
