Apartheid agents, war memories and legacies – Join Barry Gilder at Rhodes for a discussion around his book The List
More about the book!
The Rhodes University Department of Political and International Studies and Office of Equity and Institutional Culture invite you to a public dialogue titled ‘Apartheid Agents, War Memories and Legacies’ on Thursday, 14 March 2019.
The dialogue is based on Barry Gilder’s latest book, The List (2018).
The country has gone through various moments where some individuals have been accused of having been apartheid collaborators. One of the significant moments was the 2003 judicial commission of inquiry to probe allegations of apartheid-era spying against former National Director of Public Prosecutions, Bulelani Ngcuka.
Last year, following the death of Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, there was robust debate about journalists who were allegedly paid by apartheid Stratcom to conduct smear campaigns against leaders such as Madikizela-Mandela.
Last week, following the SONA, Mosiuoa Lekota accused President Cyril Ramaphosa of ‘giving information’ to the special branch of the apartheid police force in the 1970s.
This dialogue will provide historical context to the debates about apartheid collaboration and its enduring legacies in post-apartheid public culture and memory.
Gilder’s book, The List, will be available to buy at the event.
