Faculty Seminar Series: Rediscovering the Humanities in SA

Posted on August 15, 2011

Two national panels have recently looked into the Humanities in South Africa. Both have made recommendations for their recovery. Why has this been necessary? Will their suggestions help or hinder the recuperation of the Humanities in South Africa? Indeed, do they need recuperation? These and other questions will be addressed in a lecture which is concerned about the deepening hold of utilitarian forms of knowledge not only in this country but elsewhere, too. The purpose of the lecture is to suggest that the Humanities are enduring.
