Book Launch: Challenging the "apartheids" of Knowledge

Rhodes University Community Engagement proudly invites you to join us as we officially launch of our first book titled Challenging the "apartheids" of Knowledge in Higher Education through Social Innovation. The launch takes place on Thursday 25 November 2021 at 15h00. Siseko Khumalo will facilitate a discussion on the book with the book's editors, Sharli Paphitis, Joana Bezerra and Craig Paterson. 

In order to understand the relationship between social innovation and the reimagining of the knowledge economy necessary to reorient higher education most fully towards the public good, we must draw from the experiences of those working on the front lines of change. This collection represents diverse voices and disciplines, drawing together the critical reflections of academics, students and community partners from across South Africa. The book seeks to bring together theoretical and practical lessons about how research methods can be used in socially innovative ways to challenge the ‘apartheids’ of knowledge in higher education and to promote the democratization of the knowledge economy.
