The First Annual Research Day of the Faculty of Humanities, October 2013

The University of Pretoria’s Faculty of Humanities hosted the first annual faculty research day on 16 October 2013 in the Rautenbach Hall on the Hatfield Campus. UP Beat: Critical Humanities Lecture Series was presented as well as awards for the four researchers of the year. 

The day’s events opened with a viewing of research exhibits by the four Humanities Departmental Clusters, namely Languages, Applied Social Sciences, Social Sciences and Arts. Each of the five Faculty Research Themes (Southern Modernities, Visual Technologies, Peace and Conflict, Enhancing the well-being of vulnerable children and the Human Economy Program) was presented, as well as the Humanities-led Institutional Research Theme, the Capital Cities Project.
 
Following the exhibitions was the UP Beat: Critical Humanities Lecture Series, a new initiative proposed by Professor Lorenzo Fioramonti of the Department of Political Sciences.  The lectures were presented by Professor Amanda du Preez, Visual Arts, on “From self-portrait to selfie”; Dr Paulo Wood, Biokinetics, Sports and Leisure Sciences, on military training injuries; Professor Danie Prinsloo, African Languages, on the new online Sepedi dictionary; and Dr Fraser McNeill, Anthropology, on car stickers, traditional leadership, post-apartheid nationalisms and the material culture of popular performance. Professor Bart Vinck, Communication Pathology, presented the keynote address on noise exposure, related hearing loss and resulting communication pathologies in present day society. The presentations were illustrated and recorded by Nicolene Louw, a graphic facilitator.
 
Awards were given to the 2013 Faculty of Humanities Researchers of the Year:
Professor Danie Prinsloo, Department of African Languages (Language Cluster); Dr Paola Wood, Department of Biokinetics, Sports and Leisure Sciences (Applied Social Sciences Cluster); Professor Ernst Wolff, Department of Philosophy (Social Sciences Cluster); and Professor Amanda du Preez, Department of Visual Arts (Arts Cluster).
