Shazia Salie

Current Fellows: English Department, MA

I am a Masters student based in the English Department, doing research on African Spiritual Narratives with a focus on visual representation in the narrative and slave photography. In my research, I hope to continue to form connections between literature and the visual arts.  Alongside my love for history and literature, I am visually driven and enjoy creating decorative arts and crafts as well as visiting art galleries and festivals. With my undergraduate degree in Language and Communication, I developed a strong interest in contemporary methods of communicating and now serve as the Social Media Manager for “WritingThreeSixty” an interdisciplinary journal rooted in the English Department.

The CHR in the time of a global pandemic

In line with protocols introduced by government towards the prevention and containment of the COVID-19 virus, the CHR suspended its public events, seminars, and general fellowship program until further notice.  We wish CHR fellows, students, artists, colleagues and friends, as well as our partners and funders in South Africa and across the world much strength and compassion in these difficult times.
