On Tuesday, August 13, B. Anthony Bogues, director of the Center for Slavery and Justice, is taking part in a conversation on postcolonialism as part of the University of Cape Town's "Africa, Reading Humanities" series. Bogues is currently serving as a Mellon Visiting Professor in the Centre for African Studies at the university. Titled "Africa Theorises," the discussion will also involve another leading scholar on the topic, Achille Mbembe, who is a professor at the Wits Institute for Social and Economic Research (WISER), South Africa, and author of a number of French-language reflections on a decolonized Africa. "Africa, Reading, Humanities" is a new discussion series convened by the Department of English at the University of Cape Town (UCT) designed as a space for rethinking the place of the humanities at UCT and South Africa.
