"This conference aims to take a new and critical look at culture, politics and nationalism in the Eastern Cape in the post-war period, reflecting on processes of social, cultural and political change. This is examined through the prism of the lives of key Eastern Cape intellectuals, cultural brokers and political activists – who we call ‘permanent persuaders’, borrowing from Gramsci."
