This seminar will build on panel presentations by four authors who contributed to the recently published volume Race, Class and the Post-Apartheid Democratic State.

The book offers a critical engagement with the analytical approach exemplified by the work of Harold Wolpe. Wolpe was a key theorist within the South African liberation movement, and major contributor to work in sociology and the analysis of education.

The book draws on a critical analysis of Harold Wolpe’s work to consider how to understand the trajectory of the post-apartheid period. It explores how the current situation came about in the transformation, and how the current situation relates to the post-apartheid society which was conceived in anticipation.
