Book Launch: Transforming Transformation in Research and Teaching at South African Universities
This co-edited book explores some of these questions about transformation in contemporary South African higher education and how this can be facilitated through particular research and pedagogic practices.
Twenty five years after the legal demise of Apartheid, we contend that something is wrong with “transformation” in higher education, as the title suggests. We suggest that while it is important to consider redress in terms of diversity statistics and to develop policies to ensure that equitable practices in terms of institutional transformation occurs, it is not enough. We also need to consider, through careful ethnographic research, what constitutes the everyday micro-dynamics of lived experience in the lives of students. How do structural and relational features of campus life impact on students and therefore teaching, learning and research?
