Critical Conversations - Seminar Series, Shannon Cupido

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.

GC Alumni Interview Series: Senzo Hlope

One of the challenges of running a programme that seeks to provide students with opportunities to reflect critically on issues of citizenship or social justice, is that once you wrap up a course or workshop you wonder whether you achieved your objective.

It is one of our attempts at interrogating the impact we have had over the years.

The Neo-Liberal erasure of Heritage: Why the “Heritage vs ‘Development’” Debate is an Important One, Brindley Fortuin

Cape Town has come under a lot of fire with various civic associations and organisations speaking out against gentrification of the Central Business District (CBD) and its surrounding areas. One of the major challenges posed by gentrification is the very nostalgic sense of displacement of Black, Coloured working class people from their homes and communities.
