Abstract: The decolonial turn in South Africa was inspired to a large degree by the student protests of 2015, 2016 and 2017. Rallying around the banner of ‘Fallism,’ a host of student movements demanded that the colonial vestiges of higher education ‘fall.’ Soon enough, Fallism was being invoked as an inspirational force behind popular and student movements in the United States and the United Kingdom. In this seminar, I attempt to make sense of the rise of Fallist movements and explore their implications for the academic establishment.

Bio: Wahbie Long is a clinical psychologist and associate professor in the Department of Psychology and the director of the Child Guidance Clinic at the University of Cape Town. He is widely published on the history, theory and indigenization of psychology.
