Elísio Macamo: Comments on the Project Namibian and Southern African Studies

Research Colloquium - Namibian and Southern African Studies

The Research Colloquium aims at creating a forum for local and international scholars to engage in cross-disciplinary and methodological debates in Southern African Studies, with particular reference to Namibian Studies. The Colloquium welcomes presentations and discussions relating to current research and seeks to engage young and upcoming scholars. It is open to all levels and guests are welcome.

Cross-disciplinary debates and changing paradigms: The Global South engages in intense debates towards decolonising knowledge and developing alternative epistemologies. In the spring semester we discuss paradigmatic texts in order to explore the relevance and direction(s) of Namibian and Southern African Studies.

Venue: Basler Afrika Bibliographien, Klosterberg 23, 4051 Basel
Time: Wednesday 18:15-20:00
Organisation: Lena Bloemertz, Dag Henrichsen, Giorgio Miescher
