4th Apartheid Archive Conference CFP

Apartheid Archive Conference

RACE, SPACE, LOCATION, DISLOCATION: THEN AND NOW

UNIVERSITY OF PRETORIA

21-23 May 2014

1st Call for Papers

The aim of this conference is to explore reflections of the racial engineering of city spaces, locations and dislocations in the narratives contained in the Apartheid Archive, its effects on all aspects of the lived realities of ordinary South Africans during this period, and the echoes of this engineering in the occupation, usage and continued racial fragmentation of city spaces and social life in contemporary South Africa – 20 years after the transition to a fully enfranchised and democratic political dispensation.

We invite all those interested in the study of race and space in pre- and post-1994 South Africa, to submit podium presentation, panel discussion, dramatic art, and visual art exhibition abstracts for this 4th Apartheid Archive Conference.
