Repairing the brokenness of the past.

What does it mean for people on opposite sides of historic trauma to live together?
How ca we embrace one another across the fault lines of hurt, violence, and guilt?
What is missing from our existing understanding of reconciliation?

Since serving on South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission, Professor Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela has dedicated her life to understanding how we can bridge the differences that have been at the root of historic divisions through reconciliation and reparation, “creating spaces for dialogue, facing and mourning the past.”

At the 12th annual Sir John Graham Lecture, Professor Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela will reflect on the successes and failures of the practice of reconciliation as a response to historic injustices; considering questions about its capacity to interrupt intergenerational cycles of suffering and to bring wholeness and lasting peace. Her scholarship and story will contribute to our conversation as we walk in our own history and questions.

$175 (single) or $1,595 (table of 10). Pricing includes GST.
