As part of the university’s transformation efforts, we will host a webinar to explore decolonialisation and decoloniality at UCT this month.
The webinar will explore different moments in different parts of the non-Western world around the emergence of decolonial thought and discourse. We will have discussions looking at decolonisation in the context of UCT’s Vision 2030.
The webinar will cover a variety of topics such as centre/ing decolonial, African, feminist psychological knowledges; archaeological sites and visits as laboratories of local knowledge: towards community-based research experimentation and beneficiation in the global south; and the de-colonial imperative within the context of South African studies.
The speakers are the four UCT decolonialisation grant holders – Associate Professor Shose Kessi, Professor Shadreck Chirikure, Professor Floretta Boonzaier and Dr Lwazi Lushaba – who will present their work.
