Whitewashed Horizon: the capital enclousure of the ocean and maritime black erasure

November 13, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

Participate in a free seminar organized by the Interdisciplinary Center for the Study of Global Change and presented by Heather Wares.

In 2013, the South African government launched Operation Phakisa, a program focused on unlocking the economic potential of the country’s oceans under the term the ‘blue economy’.  Hence, maritime has been re-conceptualized as a global ‘commercialized’ space, building on old and producing new legislations to regulate its use, while dispossessing black African communities from ocean resources. Join Heather Wares and examine the reemergence of the ocean as a space for economic development and/or environmental conservation, demonstrated through sustainable fisheries; environmental protection, and shipping regulations.
