Salomone Presents at Conference Co-Hosted by Berkeley and University of Cape Town

Professor Rosemary Salomone recently participated in the workshop “Toward Transformative Equality: A Work in Progress” at the conference on Inequality in a Time of Global Crisis: What have we learned about effective & proportionate responses?, sponsored by the Berkeley Center on Comparative Equality and Anti-Discrimination Law and the University of Cape Town. Her presentation, “In Search of Transformative Justice: The South African Constitutional Court and the Right to Education in the Language of One’s Choice,” examined the intersectionality of race and language in post-apartheid South Africa in the context of three decisions on Afrikaans versus English instruction, the forward-looking shift in the Court’s perspective, and the implications for moving the country beyond the past and toward the Constitution’s promise of transformation and redress. Professor Salomone’s presentation was based on the chapter “Redress and Transformation” from her forthcoming book, The Rise of English: Global Politics and the Power of Language (Oxford University Press, 2021).
