Book launch: The unresolved national question – left thought under apartheid

When: Thursday, 21 September 2017 - Thursday, 21 September 2017
Where: Braamfontein Campus East
WiSER Seminar Room, 6th Floor, Richard Ward Building
Start time:17:00




The Wits Institute for Social and Economic Research co-hosts a discussion and launch of a book edited by Professor Edward Webster and Karin Pampallis.

The re-emergence of debates on the decolonisation of knowledge has revived interest in the National Question. Tensions that were suppressed and hidden in the past are now being openly debated. Despite this, the goal of one united nation living prosperously under a constitutional democracy remains elusive.

The book is authored by Webster, Alex Mashilo (SACP) and Professor Daryl Glaser (Political Studies, Wits).  Firoz Cachalia (School of Law, Wits) will be the discussant and the Professor Karl von Holdt (Society, Work and Development Institute) will chair the discussion.

 This event is co-hoted with the Department of Political Studies and Wits University Press.
