Opening Keynote by Dr. Relebohile Moletsane
Topic: Nurturing Feminist Remembering and Building Resilience Among Young People in the Context of Structural Violence
Speaker:
 Dr. Relebohile Moletsane (University of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa)
What would happen if, in the context of violence and the suffering it brings to young people in particular, we considered the benefits of feminist remembering and its potential for building and nurturing their resilience? In this presentation, I will examine the use of remembering, and its potential for building and nurturing resilience among young people impacted by violence. Addressing the question: How do social ecologies enable/constrain the resilience of young people in the face of sustained structural violence, the paper will use the concepts, remembering and resilience to analyse short autobiographical stories of young women from a rural context, in which they reflect on their life journeys and the strategies they use to negotiate their lives in the social ecologies in which they live.
