"Where I become you." (A response to Rein Brouwer)

K August

Abstract


I hereby wish to express my appreciation for the topic of your presentation for this symposium on Covert Violence and Human Dignity. Your topic ‘Where I become you’ – A practical theological reading of Antjie Krog’s concept of interconnectedness has really challenged me at a deep existential and moral level with regard to matters of citizenship, building a post-colonial society, gender, nation-building and human dignity.

Keywords


Antjie Krog; violence; human dignity; Begging to be Black; interconnectedness
