Critical Conversations: Unpacking the D-Word

Critical Conversations: Unpacking the D-Word is a series of workshops that aim to re-centre the discourse of Decoloniality, which underpinned much of the student social movements of 2015-2017. Engaging with Decoloniality as a theoretical and political praxis, we hope to confront the enduring legacies colonialism and Apartheid and their attendant forms of social and economic inequality. Although Decoloniality has been taken up as a buzzword in some sector of the academy, in others it has been met with uneasiness, scepticism, and uncertainty as to its applicability as either theory or practice.

Critical Conversations is a series of workshops hosted by the Global Citizenship Programme (GCP) for students at the University of Cape Town (UCT). Our aim is to use this space to think critically and engage innovatively with a range of key social justice issues facing South Africa and the world today. We then hope to use the new knowledge we have collectively created to take leadership and action on these issues in our own lives, communities, and academic and professional endeavours.
