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.
Critical Conversations consists of five sessions:
1. Disrupting Gender: Concepts to Consciousness (Saturday, 11 August)
2. Values & Action: Leadership and Governance for Social Justice (Saturday, 18 August)
3. Disrupting Inequality: Strategizing for Justice & Transformation (Saturday, 1 September)
4. Environmental Justice: Debates, Challenges, Strategies (Saturday, 22 September)
5. Art & Activism: Self, Symbols, and Social Movements (Saturday 6 October)
Critical Conversations take place in second semester on Saturdays between 10:00 and 12:00 on the above mentioned dates. Every workshop will be organised at a different UCT residence, on campus, or in collaboration with the DSA Student Leadership Programme. All UCT students are welcome to attend.
