Resumo

Este artigo traz algumas considerações de ordem analítica e políticas sobre o processo de zumbificação ou embruxamento na universidade e nas promessas de uma educação superior. O artigo ancora-se em material diverso (fragmentos de uma biografia, diários de campo da vida acadêmica e romances literários), proveniente de pesquisa na África do Sul e no Zimbábue. O argumento etnográfico tem duas interlocutoras principais que defendem o que chamamos de uma composição-terra. Elas lutam para se desvencilhar do aniquilamento colonial e racista que restringe suas vidas ao que denominamos de composição-plantation. Suas considerações sobre como o humano é reduzido a mero human resource na universidade, na educação superior e além, conformam argumentos etnográficos com força para confrontar a devastação capitalista promovida em nome de um sujeito universal de conhecimento. A principal proposta do artigo é, portanto, uma transformação analítica dos conceitos de alteridade, igualdade e diferença.
