23 Feb 2022

6 APRIL 2022 – 22 JUNE 2022

Centre for African Studies and San and Khoi Unit with Education Department, University of Cape Town (UCT) & Graduate School of Education, Universidade de Caxias do Sul (UCS)
You are invited to apply to participate in this NIHSS-funded post-graduate online seminar series intended as a learning space for discussing and producing relevant knowledge for social transformation in contexts of prevailing inequalities since colonial times. This collaboration will also contribute significantly to a refiguring and re-establishment of the African Studies archive at UCT after the devastating fire of April 2021 – many of the literary works permanently lost related to the pedagogical resonance of South Africans with Latin America (including Paulo Freirean Pedagogy).
The seminar series will cover, among others, the following topics: comparative studies to develop a common conceptual framework; the concept of (de)coloniality and its meanings in Africa and Latin America; participatory research methodologies; dialogical archives as conceptual framework in further advancing Paulo Freirean thinking and its link to Archie Mafeje scholarship; Knowledge sharing, dissemination and co-design production processes. Each seminar will be recorded online and archived as part of the theorization and reflective practice. A digital interactive online presence of the course for community participation in co-design and feedback processes will contribute to the theorization of ‘dialogical archives’.
This course is free, but places are limited. Civic and social justice activists are particularly encouraged to apply. Please send a motivation letter and CV to by no later than Friday 4 March 2022.
