The Acting Dean of Humanities and the Post-graduate Student Council invite you to attend a public seminar series entitled, "Citizenship and Violence: Resilient Colonialism, Xenophobia and Femicide".
This event takes the form of keynote addresses, panel discussions and workshops, from Tuesday 8th October to Friday 11th October 2019.
The events of the past few weeks in our campus at UCT and in the country have necessitated a deep and ongoing engagement with the question of citizenship, the politics of belonging and gendered violence. In public discourse, reactions and analysis often decouple the embodied forms of violence from practices and sentiments that undergird, precede and mediate them. In these series of dialogues and performances, we hope to situate and talk about variegated practices of violence that target different bodies across time and place.
