18th LIASA Annual Conference: Presenters: Angelo Fick

Angelo Fick has taught and researched the social construction and textual figuration of ‘race’, class, gender, nationality, and sexuality, and how these intersect, across disciplines ranging from literary studies to Sociology, at various universities in South Africa and abroad, including the University of Cape Town, Rhodes, UKZN, Utrecht University, Saarbrucken University, and the University of the Witwatersrand. In his last five years as a fulltime academic he taught on topics in philosophy of science in faculties of science and engineering.  He has taught specialist graduate courses on identity, representation, and ethics, and supervised higher degrees on gender in South African politics, constructions of subjectivity, configurations of sexuality and desire, and the political economy of South Africa’s 2010 World Cup.  In his current position as senior researcher at eNCA, he does regular on-air analysis of news and current affairs, and writes regular columns on ethics and human rights in the political economy of post-millennial post-apartheid South Africa for eNCA.com.  His work remains immersed in the nexus of feminism, critical ‘race’ theory, post-structuralism, and cultural studies.
