The Faculty of Humanities at Wits and the Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf) will host this public lecture.
ASSAf Distinguished Visiting Scholar, Professor Nelson Maldonado-Torres will deliver this lecture. Maldonado-Torres traces a genealogy of ‘The Decolonial Turn,’ in a set of ongoing reflections that bear the intention of decoloniality in the global south. This conversation is not one that views the project of decoloniality particularly spoken at a universities and the epistemological baggage of projects of transformation as ‘inclusion’, but seeks a language of transformation that directly confronts ongoing material, symbolic and epistemic dispossessions.
