Life Narratives and Human Rights: Events with Mark Gevisser in Johannesburg (14-15 June 2017)

We are delighted to be co-organising two events at the Johannesburg Holocaust and Genocide Centre (JHGC) on 14-15 June. Exploring the theme of ‘life narratives and human rights’, both events will feature the acclaimed South African writer and journalist Mark Gevisser, author of Lost And Found in Johannesburg: A Memoir, and Thabo Mbeki: The Dream Deferred, which won the Sunday Times Alan Paton Prize in 2008. His new book, The Pink Line: Travels Across the World’s New Queer Frontiers will be published in 2018.

A postgraduate symposium entitled Life Narratives: Self-Representation in an Age of Human Rights will take place on 14 June. Details of the programme and how to register are available on the symposium website:

The following evening a public panel will take place at the JHGC at 7.30p.m. The event is free but booking is essential. Please email to reserve a place.
