Lessons from South African Anti-State Activism for Global Human Rights

11.15.2017 @ 4:30 pm
Conversations in Human Rights

Are there lessons from South African anti-state activism for global human rights movements? Join the Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics Nov. 15, 4:30 - 6:00pm, for a panel conversation about the novel ways in which South Africans are critiquing their chaotic and corrupt government. In everyday action, language and discourse, South Africans are developing new languages of resistance, redefining their relationship with media and politicians, and are finding new ways to reshape their country. These gestures, whether lived or mediated, build on and evoke earlier sites of struggle in South Africa.Panelists include:Kerry Chance, Department of Geography & Anthropology, Louisiana State UniversityRosalind Morris, Department of Anthropology, Columbia UniversityModerated by Catherine Mathers, International Comparative Studies, Duke UniversityPlease RSVP to Deirdre White at deirdre.white@duke.edu by 5pm on November 10.
