Since 4 August 2012 Manfred von Roncador is officially retired. Before joining the professorship Afrikanistik I in 1992 he studied Linguistics, Philosophy, Romanistik, Slavistik and Afrikanistik in Munich, Hamburg and Oldenburg where he completed his PhD in 1986. He taught at the Institute for German Studies at the University of Groningen and was a DAAD-Lecturer in Ouagadougou. Thanks to an affective collaboration with the DAAD, he was guest lecturer in Angola, Benin, Burkina Faso, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Togo. Von Roncador coinitiated partnerships with some African universities, he co-supervised several master and advanced degree theses and followed up the work of many African junior researchers of whom five were admitted into BIGSAS and two have graduated. Since 1996 he has been a co-editor of the newsletter Gur News and co-organiser of the related conference whose fifth edition took place at the University of Bayreuth in July 2012. During this symposium it became obvious that von Roncador will be an active retiree. He is still an academic committee member of Afrique et Langage and Letras e Ciências Socias and member of West African Languages Society and the Association of Africanists that he chaired from 2009 to 2012.
