The CHR hosted its annual Winter School from 17 to 20 October 2022 at the District Six Homecoming Centre in Cape Town.
“In addition to fellows and researchers from the CHR-UWC, colleagues from, the Jackman Humanities Institute at the University of Toronto, the Trinity Long Room Hub at Trinity College Dublin, The Käte Hamburger Research Centre Global dis:connect at Ludwig Maximilians University, Munich and the Instituto Mauricio Kagel, Universidad Nacional de San Martin, all joined in Cape Town. This iteration of the Winter School drew its topic from work by Ajay Skaria, specifically his lecture at the 2021 CHR Winter School. Skaria’s departure marks the minor as distinct from the subaltern. He draws on Mufti in understanding the minor as a site of disruption. As per the Winter School concept note, a central consideration for theorists is to hold subalternity and minor in tension.”
