Dr. Ndumiso Dladla: Title TBD

Dr. Ndumiso Dladla is a Lecturer in Philosophy at the University of South Africa. He completed his PhD at the University of Pretoria in 2021, with a dissertation entitled "‘Not yet Ubuntu: Towards an African Critical Philosophy of Race’. Although he has only just completed his doctorate, he has taught philosophy and published a monograph and ten articles or book chapters covering the fields of Black historiography, African social, legal and political philosophy since 2012. His work draws on a critical study of Western legal and political philosophy as well as a comparative study of Black political thought. His monograph, Here is a Table (2018/revised 2020) examines the effects of colonialism and white supremacy on subjectivity and meaning in South Africa. It is widely read and taught in courses on African philosophy and politics, and has been part of the strategic planning and goals for the National Conference of Black Political Scientists. Dr. Dladla's interest in working at Queen's arises in part from his recognition of shared legacies of colonialism and of the silencing of indigenous voices and philosophy. He has taught courses in African Philosophy, African Ethics and Politics, and Environmental Ethics.
