University of South Africa (Unisa) College of Humanities is currently hosting a Decoloniality Summer School focusing on developing a decolonised consciousness.
Unisa's Professor Puleng Segalo says the university seeks to find ways how humans can 'unlearn and unthink the ways they have come to understand the world'.
The idea is invoke our ancestor intellectuals who have been silent for a very long time, so we can come to understand that here are multiple ways of knowing not only not only universalist ways of understanding the world.— Professor Puleng Segalo, Unisa College of Humanities
