Sammanfattning

Drawing upon current theoretical discussions around the coloniality of power/knowledge, the aim of this article is to investigate a specific moment in recent South African history – the student protests that shook the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg and indeed the country in 2015 and 2016. Particular focus is put on practices, that is, what students did and how their embodied performances were received on a variety of media platforms. From this vantage point, the article illustrates the coloniality of power/knowledge that regulates the intersectional nexus points of gender and race, and creates specific regimes of intelligibility and unintelligibility that praise or dismiss similar embodied speech acts. Ultimately, the examples from South African student protests are presented in the article with a view to reigniting the project of undisciplined applied linguistics (Moita Lopes 2006), an academic enterprise that among other things makes visible those complex inscriptions of privilege/oppression that we carry as a result of colonial history.
