Are universities in transition or becoming obsolete?

Imagine there are no longer universities, where the spaces of higher education are no longer producing knowledge. Imagine these institutions were to become obsolete. This was the issue historians were grappling with during one of the afternoon sessions on the second day of the Southern African Historical Society conference at Rhodes University, entitled: “Universities: Politics and Policies.”

Conference urges historians to rethink perspectives on Southern African histories

Addressing over 200 historians, artists, archivists, curators and scholars at the 27th biennial South African Historical Society (SAHS) conference, keynote speaker Professor Francis Nyamnjoh from the University of Cape Town challenged the audience to embrace their incompleteness as scholars and to borrow from one another on their journey of self-activation.
