AboutDerilene Dee Marco

Derilene Dee Marco is a lecturer in the Department of Media Studies at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa. She holds a PhD from the Department of Film and Television Studies at Warwick University. To date, her research has dealt with apartheid and postapartheid as a project of memory and cultural practices thinking with cinema and the sensibilities of “rainbow nation” as seen in postapartheid cultural works. Dee is currently working on a new research project that deals with mothers and notions of mothering and radical care as political and agential in South Africa – before apartheid, during and after it. Dee teaches courses such as Postcolonial Media in the Global South and Global Cinema. Dee is also a feminist, a mother, partner and avid wellness fanatic who loves books, yoga and quiet moments wherever and whenever they can be found in between and amidst two small children.
