For this book & audiobook presentation, Arianna Dagnino will be joined by Dr. Stefano Gulmanelli, who worked with her in South Africa & teaches Sociology of Identity and Sociology of Migration at the University of British Columbia. The conversation will span from intercultural relations, multiculturalism in Canada & South Africa, to the relationship between science & the notion of magic, through the eyes of an Italian writer & an Italian scholar

In April 2021, The Afrkaner was launched in audiobook format, superbly narrated by South African voice actor Dennis Kleinman, as well in German translation with the title "Die Afrikaanerin" (PalmArt Press, Berlin, 2021).

Dr. Arianna Dagnino is also the Cultural Events Coordinator of the Dante Society of BC.
