Killing the Nation: a queer analysis on violence Web Seminar

This is not another GBV talk. We have been here before, and the results have been the same. This time we take a different turn.

This is not another GBV talk. We have been here before, and the results have been the same. This time we take a different turn. 

This seminar invites critical thought and action as a response to Cathy Cohen’s (2012: 129) call to go “beyond the brief memory of the deaths towards a more compre-hensive, ongoing and long-lasting analysis of violence”.

The event is part of the popular Fort Hare Friday Seminar Series - a partnership between the University of Fort Hare (Department of Sociology and Anthropology), and Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung South Africa (FES-SA).

Date:15 October 2021
