Hello Colleagues

My name is Michael Chapman. My field is South African Literature, in which I pursue issues such as: how to talk about literature in a politically demanding society; and how to apply the category ‘postcolonialism’ not only to North-South/or South-North conversations, but also to South-South interchange.

I remain a professor emeritus and fellow at the University of KwaZulu-Natal (Durban), where, until I retired, I was senior professor of English Studies. I am currently affiliated, as a senior researcher, to the Durban University of Technology and the Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Study. At the same time, I assist the recently formed National Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences in mentoring doctoral students, particularly at the University of the Western Cape, more generally, in the Western Province region.

 Among my publications, Southern African Literatures and Art Talk, Politics Talk have received significant awards. (See “CV” and “Books”)

 As an A-rated researcher (NRF) and a member of the Academy of Science of South Africa (ASSAf), I serve on various standing committees in the humanities while remaining the editor-in-chief of the accredited journal, Current Writing.
