Hugo ka Canham: Riotous Deathscapes through the Watchful Ocean

Presented by the Program in Critical Theory, the Series in Black / Africana Critical Theory stages a slow sequence of conversations across Africana Studies, Black Study, and Critical Theory. Rather than a form of triangulation that aims at resolution, the series stays with tension across these lines of thought, in provisional forms of critical contemplation that might help us meet our current condition. This seminar centers on Riotous Deathscapes, by Hugo ka Canham, Professor at the Institute for Social and Health Sciences, University of South Africa.
