Mandela 1

On Friday 7 February we were delighted to welcome two senior Oxford professors to discuss the achievements and enduring significance of Nelson Mandela. Elleke Boehmer, Professor of World Literature, and William Beinart, Rhodes Professor of Race Relations, brought distinct perspectives to a conversation which touched on the iconicity of Mandela – brilliantly exemplified for us by Professor Boehmer’s props, which included Mandela coasters and a Mandela apron – coverage of his death and funeral, and the likely prospects for South African politics in the future.
