Panel discussion on "Lessons from South African Anti-State Activism for Global Human Rights" at Duke University.

Are there lessons from South African anti-state activism for global human rights movements? Join the Duke Human Rights Center at the Kenan Institute for Ethics on November 15, 4:30–6:00 p.m., for a panel conversation about the novel ways in which South Africans are critiquing their chaotic and corrupt government. In everyday action, language and discourse, South Africans are developing new languages of resistance, redefining their relationship with media and politicians, and are finding new ways to reshape their country. These gestures, whether lived or mediated, build on and evoke earlier sites of struggle in South Africa.

Panelists include:

Kerry Chance, Department of Geography and Anthropology, Louisiana State University 
Rosalind Morris, Department of Anthropology, Columbia University 
Moderated by Catherine Mathers, International Comparative Studies, Duke University
