AADS 3362 South African Struggles, South African Lives (Fall: 3 )
In South Africa, the struggle often refers to mobilizations against the racist Apartheid regime that was in power from 1948 to 1994. The struggle against Apartheid is just one site through which we will study meanings and practices of struggle in South Africa. We will examine various struggles for independence, livelihoods, rights and justice before, during and after Apartheid. We will pay close attention to the struggles that people engage and enact in their lives, and we will approach discourses and meanings of concepts like culture, belonging, and politics as sites of struggle in and of themselves.
