On the first day of his five-day Summer School course, Professor Lungisile Ntsebeza painted a grim picture of how the country's laws have been used to empower, and conversely, disempower South Africans regarding land.
Several initiatives are creating new audiences for UCT's Summer School. While the hub remains the Kramer Building on UCT’s middle campus, an off-campus series of lectures will be held at the Athlone Cultural Hub. The team has also embarked on an outreach programme to township schools, targeting matrics in the UCT Schools Improvement Initiative’s 100UP programme in Khayelitsha and surrounding areas.
University of Cape Town’s (UCT) Centre for African Studies lecturer Dr June Bam-Hutchison shared personal anecdotes and her research with 2019 Summer School participants in the short course titled “Khoisan Indigenous Identity Issues and Social Justice”.
