***Brief
The serial presentations derive from the Humanities@Mak100 Research Project, which critically historicizes and interrogates the past and current positionality of the disciplines of Humanities and Humanistic Social Sciences at Makerere University as well as the legacy of colonialism on these disciplines in a systematic and meaningful manner. The Project’s goal is to re-examine the basis and significance of humanities and humanistic social sciences at Makerere University from a historical perspective to reflect critically on the role and significance of these disciplines to shape their future trends in Uganda and East Africa.
