The colloquium invites participants to linger on narrative’s capacity for renewal and engage with the questions it provokes.

The fifth NEST (Narrative Enquiry for Social Transformation) Colloquium and Winter School is themed Narrative Renewal amidst the Provocations of Memory, Hurt and Healing. The colloquium invites participants to linger on narrative's capacity for renewal and engage with the questions it provokes, in the current socio-political milieu, but also, for our understandings of historical dimensions of narrative's power of renewal as well as future projections, modes of reimagining and reconstituting selves and communities from spaces of “woundedness” and hurt.

Speakers include:

  • Hugo Canham (Wits University)
  • Neo Sinoxolo Musangi (independent feminist queer thinker and artist)
  • Kopano Ratele (University of South Africa and the South African Medical Research Council)
