We are delighted to invite you to our first Black in Geography student-led seminar for this academic year on Friday 18 November at 4 pm GMT on Zoom.

In this seminar, we are honoured to have Professor Thembela Kepe sharing his thoughts on Geographers as insurgent scholars in conversation with MPhil student Nonhlanhla Mathibela.

In this talk, Professor Thembela Kepe makes a case for insurgent scholarship, particularly in knowledge production and dissemination. He draws from a range of literature (e.g. on insurgent citizenship), as well as his own work on land rights and anti-racism, to argue that insurgent scholars should constantly confront and challenge existing orders and power relations, even as they are aware of the risks involved. While acknowledging that insurgent scholarship can take many forms and that journeys on it are not linear, he shares some ideas that can help disrupt our comforts as scholars. His talk will be followed by insights from MPhil student Nonhlanhla Mathibela.
