Antje Schuhmann

Antje Schuhmann holds a PhD in Postcolonial Studies (University of Munich, Germany) and works as a Senior Lecturer in the Political Studies Department at Witwatersrand University. The intersections of power with body politics and historic legacies within todays systems of violence and domination are one of the main foci of her intellectual and activist work. How do gender, race, sexuality, and class manifest in everyday experiences and politics of representation? How are the ways we memorize past violence subverting or reinforcing contemporary forms of oppression? She is active in international feminist and anti-racist and anti-fascist networks and initiatives, has produced film and audio features, and is published widely internationally.
