Shannon Morreira

Senior Lecturer, University of Cape Town

I am an anthropologist who works in Education Development. My research interests are situated broadly around the politics of knowledge production. Previous work has focused on the ways in which ideas of human rights are circulated and contested; and I am currently engaged in research on the ways in which knowledge is being generated in the postcolonial Humanities.
