 Seminar

 

The South African Contemporary History and Humanities Seminar, has been in operation since 1993 and it is co-hosted by the History Department and the Center for Humanities Research at UWC.

Established with the aim of creating a forum where members of the UWC academic community, as well as interested academics form other universities, can meet and engage in academic discussion around issues in South African historical studies, the Tuesday seminar has been much more than that.  Since its inception, its scope transcended South African historical studies and the UWC academic space, hosting scholars from all over the world and engaging in cross-disciplinary debates.

All papers are circulated in advance and taken as read in order to facilitate and enrich the discussion. Hard copies of the presented papers are available at the Centre for Humanities Research and at the History Department a week before. Copies of previous seminar papers are housed at the CHR archives.

The seminar is organised by Leslie Witz and Premesh Lalu. To be included in the mailing list and recieve information on the Seminar Programme, please contact Lameez Lalken (llalken@uwc.ca.za)
