On Friday, 6 November 2020, we will be launching our Seminar Series with the theme ‘Engaging the present – Africa in the world’.

This series will focus on Africa and knowledges guided by the question “What is an African today?” This question is not a demand for a description of the sort of thing we can say is African, that is, an account of qualities we can claim are predominantly shared by people inhabiting the geographical space called Africa. This question is rather an invitation to consider the sort of Africa we think is worth striving after. Who should we strive to become as Africans today – in the here and now? That is the challenge.

This seminar series is presented by the Chair for Critical Studies in Higher Education Transformation, Emengini Institute for Comparative Global Studies, Center for Philosophy in Africa, and the Faculty of Humanities of Nelson Mandela University.

The seminar will be hosted on Zoom on 6 November 2020, 13:00-14:00 (SAST).
