Videos and Pictures from the colloquium on 'States, citizens, subjects and violence'

The colloquium on 'States, citizens, subjects and violence: An African/Latin American engagement’ took place in Johannesburg, South Africa in August 2019, and brought together scholars from across Latin America and Africa in conversation as part the 'Violent state, states of violence' project at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg. This colloquium was designed to facilitate an engagement between scholars of violence in Latin America and in Africa with a view to developing new perspectives on politics, violence, citizenship and subjecthood, its causes, and the work it accomplishes. The videos of the panels and discussions, as well as a few pictures from the colloquium can be found below.
