LSE Arts and Africa Talks film screening

Please note the change to the advertised start time in the events leaflet- this event will start at 6.30pm.

The film tells the story of the life and death of David Kato, a Ugandan gay rights campaigner who was killed in 2011 at a time when a bill to make homosexuality punishable by death was pending in the Ugandan parliament.

Following the film, a panel discussion will consider the issue of homophobia in Africa in the context of the moral scramble for Africa currently being waged by the Christian fundamentalists and human rights lobbies.

Replacing the Nation:  South Africa's Passive Revolution? 
Department of Geography and Environment/Africa Talks public lecture

Professor Gillian Hart

In the light of the conflicting forces that have unfolded in South Africa over the last decade, Gillian Hart takes a fresh look at the nation’s transition from apartheid. Based on Professor Hart’s forthcoming book, this lecture will explore the simultaneous processes of South African de-nationalization, re-nationalization and ‘elite pacting’, before examining how this fits within contemporary debates over passive revolution.

Gillian Hart is Professor of Geography and Co-chair of Development Studies and the University of California, Berkeley, and an Honorary Research Professor at the University of KwaZulu-Natal.
