Archives of the Non-Racial - Workshop in Theory and Criticsim

29 June - 11 July 2014
Johannesburg, Mbabane, Durban, Ginsberg, Cape Town 

The Johannesburg Workshop in Theory and Criticism is an experiment in global conversation based in the South. Located in Johannesburg, we seek to be a critical node in the re-territorializing of global intellectual production. We are a centre for theoretical work that takes seriously a position in the South while addressing international conversations and problématiques. We take the labour of theory and criticism to be significant political work that is crucial to the experimentation in social forms.

As part of the Workshop, a series of public lectures, panels, book launches and performance will be hosted:

Programme Week 1 (Johannesburg, Mbabane, Durban)

Programme Week 2 (Ginsberg, Cape Town)
