Book Launch -- CATEGORIES OF PERSONS Rethinking Ourselves and Others by Megan Jones and Jacob Dlamini

Thursday, 10 October, 2013 - 13:00

WiSER invites you to the Launch of a new Book by

Megan Jones and Jacob Dlamini

CATEGORIES OF PERSONS
Rethinking Ourselves and Others

Race and identity continue to galvanise and polarise public opinion in South Africa.  From taxi rides to cross-dressing, from inter-race marriages to living with disability and dealing with off-beat topics in between, contributions from NEELS BLOM, JACOB DLAMINI, MEGAN JONES, ANTONY KAMINJU, ANTJIE KROG, KAREN LAZAR,  RIAAN OPPELT, VERASHNI PILLAY, KOPANO RATELE and a foreword by NJABULO NDEBELE are guaranteed to challenge assumptions about what it means to be ‘able-bodied’, ‘black’, ‘white’, ‘Indian’ or ‘coloured’ as they narrate encounters and experiences that transcend racial and social stereotyping. 

Speakers:
Sarah Nuttall (WiSER, Wits University), Bheki Peterson (African Literature, Wits University) and Neels Blom (Freelance Journalist)
