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 - 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 from these questions that we bring you a series of feature pieces where we interviewed UCT Global Citizenship (GC) alumni, to find out what life looks like “after GC”. It is one of our attempts at interrogating the impact we have had over the years.
