Dorothée Munyaneza “The body is an instrument”

There are a number of historical and social reasons for this, which persist today and keep women out of these disciplines. This is especially true for black women, who must also battle outdated cultural ideals that suggest they don’t “belong” in science. In today’s episode of Pasha, Ndoni Mcunu, a PhD Candidate at the University of the Witwatersrand, takes us through her story of being a black woman in science.

Politics of Restitution of African Objects II

The ideation of restitution seemingly promises fundamental changes on the morphological scapes of politics & global mobility of ideas & people, Is it a convenient political ploy…?or a recognition of the extraordinary levels of historical violence, cultural & ecological harm…?
