How British war comics of the 60s, 70s and 80s aided the formulation of a militarised state-of-mind among white English speaking boys during apartheid.
CAST member Dr Stephen Symons’ exhibition explores the under-researched domain of British war comics and their indelible influence on English speaking boys during apartheid. It examines how war comics aided the tacit construction of a militarised state-of-mind, effectively buttressing the ideologies of the apartheid regime and former South African Defence Force (SADF).
The Harry Garuba Podcast Series celebrates the incisive thinking of one of the continent’s most distinguished academics.
As UP faculty and CAST members, Nick Shepherd and I remember Harry’s particular gentleness and deep humility. We also remember his steely resolve to ‘do the right thing’, often at great cost. This podcast series honours Harry’s determination to ask those pertinent and often uncomfortable questions that shake and enrich our sense of being.
This series pays tribute to Harry Garuba and we are especially honoured that his is the inaugural podcast. Our deepest thanks and appreciation to his wife, Zazi, for sharing Harry and for supporting this endeavour.
