Prof Nithaya Chetty Transformation Talk
29 October 2015
Faculty of Humanities, UP
THE STRUGGLE FOR THE SOUL OF A SOUTH AFRICAN UNIVERSITY
by Nithaya Chetty and Christopher Merrett
Thank you, Faculty of Humanities, for hosting me and for arranging this very special event. This is, in many ways the culmination of our efforts with the book that began more than six years ago. Our book was released in September last year; we have sold a few hundred books including internationally, and have had more than 1000 e-book downloads, so our work is out there. I have given several talks nationally. We have had good feedback, and I wish to thank many of you for your support.
I would like to recognise Prof John van den Berg in the audience, who is a professor of mathematics at UP, a fellow comrade and friend. Like me, John is amongst many UKZN exiles who have found a happy home here at the UP. John fought an honourable battle for the sanctity of the UKZN senate as described in Chapters 9 and 10 of our book.
