The curriculum is dead! Long live the curriculum! This lecture will explore the unwritten and unspoken in the university experience of students, up to and including the classroom experience. It will seek to sharply pose the question of the shape, feel, tone and ambience of the South African university by seeking to examine the critical but unwritten, the crucial but unspoken, the life-changing but unofficial, the exclusions by inclusion, taming disguised as teaching, mimicry disguised as radicalism; in other words, the factors that make up the real university curriculum.

The lecture will also propose how South African universities could best transform the curriculum behind the curriculum. Professor Tinyiko Maluleke is a respected academic, public intellectual and theologian. His research interest and expertise are trans- and interdisciplinary and has therefore grown beyond the field in which he obtained his doctorate. He is well read in the humanities and social sciences and has been a visiting professor and guest lecturer at several universities. He has held various executive management positions at South African universities.
