The Political Studies Department and the Centre for Humanities Research (CHR) at the University of the Western Cape (UWC) in collaboration with the University of Johannesburg’s (UJ) Institute for Pan-African Thought and Conversation (IPATC) invite you to a launch of the edited volume entitled “From Ivory Towers to Ebony Towers: Transforming Humanities Curricula in South Africa, Africa and African-American Studies”.
The CHR is co-sponsoring a two-part series of conversations on the critical work of humanities centers and humanities administration: “Forming the Humanities: On Care” and “Traversing the Humanities: On Space.” These sessions are open to anyone engaged with the work of directing and administering humanities centers and other spaces.
Join Prof. Patricia Hayes for “Photographs and the Long Inception of Colonialism in Southern Angola,” a lecture hosted by the Institute of the Humanities and Global Cultures (IHGC) at the University of Virginia.
CHR Artist in Residence Juan Orrantia will present his ongoing artistic work “Everything that was made was not destroyed, but also does not exist” at the South African Contemporary History and Humanities Seminar on 14 September 2021.
On 9 March 2021, the CHR’s Jane Taylor and Aja Marneweck will be participating in the puppetry workshop Animations and Activations with William Ellis (Dept. of Anthropology, UWC) and Marcus Neustetter as part of the Tri-Continental Partnership between the University of Missouri, the University of the Western Cape, and Ghent University.
