On todays episode we're speaking to Dr. Sabelo Ndlovu-Gatsheni who is the head of the Archie Mafeje research institute at the University of South Africa. Our discussion revolved around a useful and concise summary of his more expansive scholarship worked through in his books on decoloniality in the African context listed below. Dr. Ndlovu-Gatsheni offers us a refresher on some of the basic concepts of decoloniality such as being, knowledge and power and speaks to the messy transition of colonial Africa into a neocolonial paradigm and its concomitant ludic discourse of postcolonialism. We also touch on the Rhodes Must Fall movement and what the call to 'decolonize the university' actually entails.
