The workshop will host an interdisciplinary and geographically diverse group of humanistic scholars and public intellectuals primarily from Africa. It will serve as a space for discussing the ideas, methods, and practices of “the global” – both in relation to the local and the regional. It will serve as a critical step towards creating an intellectually challenging and institutionally effective global humanities curriculum.
The workshop - funded by the Andrew W. Mellon and Volkswagen Foundations – will take place on December 10 and 11, 2018 in Cape Town. It is co-organised by Homi Bhabha from the Mahindra Humanities Centre at Harvard University and Professor Premesh Lalu from the Centre of Humanities Research at the University of the Western Cape.
