Nyasha Mboti, “Closing the Loophole: Apartheid Studies”

December 10, 2020 @ 9:30 am

FLyer for Zoom Talk for "Closing the Loophole" on 12/10/20 at 9:30AM
Professor Mhoze Chikowero invites all to attend a special guest lecture by Dr. Nyashi Mboti as part of UCSB’s African Studies Series. Dr. Mboti will discuss the new field he founded: Apartheid Studies. He will introduce his forthcoming 4-volume treatise on the subject, Apartheid Studies: A Manifesto, which will change how we think about enslavement, colonialism, neocolonialism, impoverishment, and the exploitation and carnage of humans that has defined global history for at least half a millennium.
Dr. Mboti is an Associate Professor in the Department of Communication Science at the University of the Free State in South Africa. His keen interest in academia is to ask questions that people do not normally intend or think to ask. He has, to date, successfully supervised ten doctoral students,
delivered seminal keynotes at international conferences, and published over two dozen peer reviewed research articles.
To read an early copy of Volume 1 of Apartheid Studies: A Manifesto, contact Professor Chikowero at chikowero@history.ucsb.edu or Claudia Ankrah at c_ankrah@ucsb.edu. To download the flyer for the lecture, click here. To attend Dr. Mbughuni’s lecture on Zoom, use this link.
