On 27 September, a one-day international colloquium will be hosted at the University of the Witwatersrand as part of the opening and study of the apartheid archives in South Africa. Through a comparative reach into the experiences of colonial and repressive regimes in other parts of Africa, the colloquium will reflect on the contemporary and historical significance of the recently-restored Rivonia sound archive, as well as other legal archives. New perspectives on liberation movements and emancipatory politics will be at the heart of the day’s discussions.
