Neo Lekgotla laga Ramoupi of the Africa Institute of South Africa called for a genuine shift away from Eurocentric education, as the latter reflects a continuous marginalisation and exclusion of other knowledge production, particularly knowledge with an African focus.

Ramoupi was presenting a seminar, Deconstructing Eurocentric Education: Teaching African-centred curricula at the universities of Fort Hare & Cape Town, hosted by UCT's Centre for African studies as part of its series on

Undisciplining Knowledge: Theories, practices & imaginaries. "We must learn from Africa what happened in Africa," said Ramoupi (left in picture with Kylie Thomas of the Department of English Language and Literature).
