  • Effective Pathways to Africa's Agricultural Transformation
    Wednesday, August 4, 20219:30 am –11:00 am ETOnline only   Register: https://primetime.bluejeans.com/a2m/register/qbakxxyw   Agriculture is Africa's primary gateway out of hunger and poverty; the sector employs 65 - 70 percent of Africa's labor force while supporting the livelihoods of 90 percent of the population. However, for the sector to lead the path to the desired food security and superior incomes for Africa, it is imperative that conversations and investments are made towards transforming the continent's agricultural work into a profitable and sustainable enterprise. The urgency of this transformation has been made clear during the COVID-19 pandemic, where the continent has been forced to re-think its food production and distribution systems. The closure of borders, lockdowns and limitations of movement indicated the need for Africa to develop homegrown solutions for its staple food needs and market development. It is against this backdrop that this webinar is held as a session to define the investments needed for a vibrant and functional agricultural sector that can deliver sufficient food and nutrition supplies for all as well as exciting farmer incomes. The conversation will address the roles of individual stakeholders, partnerships and leadership in building an inclusive agricultural transformation across the continent. The webinar will also define the role of public sector commitment in transforming the agriculture sector, with notable examples from successes in Rwanda. Similarly, the critical position of private sector participation shall be highlighted as supported by the transformative role of this group in uplifting Ghana's food systems. This session is facilitated by the Alliance for a Green Revolution on Africa (AGRA), an African-led and Africa-based organization currently leading the pursuit of an agricultural transformation through investments in systems development, policy and state capability, and partnerships. This webinar will feature special opening remarks from Dr. Agnes Kalibata, UN Secretary-General’s Special Envoy to the 2021 Food Systems Summit.

  • Young Ugandan entrepreneurs get hands-on experience with digital tools
    Seven young entrepreneurs belonging to four teams from Uganda participated in a hands-on learning course to familiarise themselves with the solar-powered smart projector kit that they had won through the Access Agriculture Young Entrepreneur Challenge Fund initiative. The smart projector contains the entire library of Access Agriculture farmer-training videos in local and international languages and can be easily updated as new videos become available.   The winners of the Challenge Fund, known as Entrepreneurs for Rural Access (ERAs), are part of a network of innovative young people who design sustainable business models based on using the smart projector in rural areas to bring about a positive change in the lives of farmers, especially women and youth, in their communities through promoting sound agroecological practices.   The course was held at Gudie Leisure Farm, Wakiso district in Uganda as part of the Knowledge Centre for Organic Agriculture in Africa (KCOA) project funded by GIZ. It was facilitated by Access Agriculture ERA Entrepreneur coaches based in Uganda, in association with a local partner, The Farmers Media, and colleagues from KCOA project and the Participatory Ecological Land Use Management (PELUM) network in Uganda.   Simon Negro Adriko, who has been an ERA in Uganda since 2019, was invited to share his entrepreneurship experiences with the newly recruited ERAs. One of the ERAs from AgroMush team who is just completing his studies in Algeria, Azaria Kamusiime, participated virtually in all the sessions.   The training consisted of presentations, classroom and practical field sessions, including: Group presentations of assignments given by the ERA coach before the training relating to key topics of the sessions Demonstration of COVID-19 prevention guidelines that ERAs should follow during the training and in their enterprise-related activities Hands-on experience with the smart projector Data collection tools to monitor and track performance Practical field tasks which involved all the elements that they learnt in the classroom – from youth mobilisation to screening of videos using the smart projector and data collection Session on basic business skills and development of work plans   Continue to accessagriculture.org's website for more information!

  • Conference: A Call for the Desuperiorization of Philosophy and the Foundation of Superaltern Studies
    A Call for the Desuperiorization of Philosophy and the Foundation of Superaltern Studies August 11-13   About the conference It seems Western thought, to this day, has not sufficiently recognized its superioristic danger as the danger that it is! When considering contemporary contexts, this danger remains real. The foreign, the other, is stigmatized or re-stigmatized. Western thought remains dangerous. The West must finally take this seriously and critically evaluate its value as a normative authority. It would hardly be surprising if we indeed find that a lot of contemporary problems have grown forth from the pseudo-self-evident superiority of the white, heterosexual, male human being many of the Enlightenment thinkers tried so vigorously to defend by manipulating philosophy. The West needs to understand itself, needs to understand all the intricacies of its superiorism, its superalternity and finally start working on the desuperiorization of its thought. We want to stimulate a discussion that Western thought must understand that its central task must be its Desuperiorization. We need to establish Superaltern Studies. We need to understand the superiorism of Western thought. We need to understand it deeply to be able to identify and avoid it. We need to understand why Western thought and Western action so often brought exploitation and humiliation with it. The Enlightenment did not only introduce a new understanding of the value of the human being, it also introduced a new level of dehumanization. Philosophy did not only argue to treat all human beings humanely, it – implicitly and explicitly – worked at the same time on reducing the numbers of those who were human enough to be treated humanely. This seems to have been one the most important intellectual self-deception moves that enabled so many philosophers to be humanist and anti-humanist at the same time: to simply disregard the humanness of those mistreated. We want to understand how superiorism has, and continues to play out, in terms of the colonialism and neocolonialism that has continued to affect much of the global south. We need to see how decoloniality expresses itself, and should express itself, as a necessary response to superiorization and inferiorization, as well as the psychological baggage that comes with it. We need to also examine the epistemological effects of superiorization, which has presented itself in what scholars have termed epistemic injustice, epistemic harm, and/or epistemic violence. How has this affected scholarship and knowledge production and must it be resisted? How do we balance identity and pride with the devastating effects of superiorization and othering?     Speakers Robert Bernasconi, Pennsylvania State University, USA Benda Hofmeyr, University of Pretoria, South Africa Elvis Imafidon, University of London, England Janine Jones, University of North Carolina at Greensboro, USA Siseko Kumalo, University of Pretoria, South Africa Dimpho Takane Maponya, University of Johannesburg, South Africa Veli Mitova, University of Johannesburg, South Africa Ana Paula Coelho Rodrigues, University of Paderborn, Germany Boaventura des Santos Sousa, University of Coimbra, Portugal University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA Natsu Taylor Saito, Georgia State University, USA Abraham Tobi, University of Johannesburg, South Africa Mpho Tshivhase, University of Pretoria, South Africa   Organization Committee Björn Freter, Independent Researcher, Knoxville, TN, USA Aribiah Attoe,  Conversational Society of Philosophy, South Africa   For any questions, please write to  desuperiorization@gmail.com     The event will be held online.

  • Expert Panel Discussion on Media and Communication in Africa
      Join our expert panel this Friday 21st at 3pm South Africa time (2pm GMT) for a broad-ranging discussion on all aspects of African media, culture and communication.The discussion celebrates the publication of the Routledge Handbook of African Media and Communication Studies, edited by Winston Mano and viola c. milton. Together with the 21 contributors, they represent most of the world's leading experts in the field. During the launch, Professor Mano and Professor Milton will be joined in discussion by five contributors, and there will also be time to ask the experts your own questions. The session is entirely free to attend, and registration for the event is quick and easy, via the following link:https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/4880868870072937997 More about the book can be found below, or at the book's webpage here, where you will also find chapter 19 of the book available as a free download:https://www.routledge.com/Routledge-Handbook-of-African-Media-and-Communication-Studies/Ma...This handbook comprises fresh and incisive research focusing on African media, culture and communication. The chapters from a cross-section of scholars dissect the forces shaping the field within a changing African context. It adds critical corpora of African scholarship and theory that places the everyday worlds, needs and uses of Africans first. The book goes beyond critiques of the marginality of African approaches in media and communication studies to offer scholars the theoretical and empirical toolkit needed to start building critical corpora of African scholarship and theory that places the everyday worlds, needs and uses of Africans first. Decoloniality demands new epistemological interventions in African media, culture and communication, and this book is an important interlocutor in this space. In a globally interconnected world, changing patterns of authority and power pose new challenges to the ways in which media institutions are constituted and managed, as well as how communication and media policy is negotiated and the manner in which citizens engage with increasing media opportunities. The handbook focuses on the interrelationships of the local and the global and the concomitant consequences for media practice, education and citizen engagement in today’s Africa. Altogether, the book foregrounds convivial epistemologies relevant for locating African media and communication in the pluriverse. This handbook is an essential read for critical media, communications, cultural studies and journalism scholars.Table of Contents Decoloniality and the push for African media and communication studies: an introduction Winston Mano and viola c. milton 2.
