#Decolonise! Call for papers
Design educators reflect on the call for the decolonisation of education
The year 2016 will be noted in the annals of history as a watershed year in South African Higher Education. The calls by South African students for decolonised education have been emphatically professed, loud and clear. This call will be addressed at the 14th National Design Education Conference of the Design Education Forum of South Africa (DEFSA), hosted by the Tshwane University of Technology’s Faculty of the Arts and Inscape Education Group from 27 – 29 September at Freedom Park, City of Tshwane.
With the 2017 #Decolonise! Conference design educators are provided with the opportunity to reflect on, and critically interrogate the notion of Decolonisation in relation to design education with the aim of transforming existing practices. Asking questions on who, what, where, when and how?
Through strategic partnerships with Freedom Park, and its Department of Heritage and Knowledge, and the City of Tshwane, the Design Education Forum of Southern Africa (DEFSA) invites all role-players in design to submit academic papers that will contribute to this discourse.For the full call for papers and submission criteria, click here
