Work In Progress Seminars

This seminar gives a behind-the-scenes look at how scholarly or academic projects are born and unfold- from research projects to writing an article or a book. Talks are only half an hour followed by questions and discussion. Sherry and juice are served. The seminar is organised and chaired by Dr John van Wyhe. If you would like to give a talk in the series, please contact Dr van Wyhe.

Everyone is welcome. Afterwards there is the possibility of dining together.

The Tembusu (Fagraea fragrans) is a large evergreen tree in the family Gentianaceae. It is native to Southeast Asia. Its trunk is dark brown, with deeply fissured bark, looking somewhat like a bittergourd. It grows in an irregular shape from 10 to 25m high. Its leaves are light green and oval in shape. Its yellowish flowers have a distinct fragrance and the fruits of the tree are bitter tasting red berries, which are eaten by birds and fruit bats.
