PROSPA Publishing workshops

Annual Publishing Workshops are hosted by the Publishing and Research of the South: Positioning Africa (PROSPA) programme, and take place in different African cities each year. The goals of the workshops are to increase and strengthen publishing in the field of the visual and performing arts of Africa, and to prepare articles for publication in relevant scholarly journals. The first workshop was held at Rhodes University in July 2016, and included participants from Uganda, Zimbabwe, Zambia and South Africa.

Dr. Alex Dodd participated in the workshop as a critical reader, and postgraduate students Sikhumbuzo Makadula, Gladys Kalichini, Thando Mama and Jean-Sylvain Tshilumba Mukendi contributed on the postgraduate days.
