Lwando Scott

Lwando Scott is a Next Generation Scholar at the Centre for Humanities Research (CHR) at the University of the Western Cape (UWC). Lwando’s work focuses on gender and sexuality in postcolonial and post-apartheid contexts. His work interrogates narrow definitions of “Africanness”, particularly definitions that seek to position African queer people as existing outside that “Africanness”. Lwando’s work is interested in expansive definitions/formulations of Africanness.
