Unsettling Paradigms

Unsettling Paradigms: The Decolonial Turn in the Humanities Curriculum at Universities in South Africa is a five-year supra-institutional collaborative project that brings together eight research-intensive universities: Pretoria, Wits, Free State, Rhodes, Western Cape, Cape Town, Stellenbosch and KwaZulu-Natal. These institutions have indicated and confirmed their commitment to working together on the project, which is both socially and historically relevant. Spurred by recent developments in the social movement for transformation in the higher education landscape, the project will offer fresh insights that will stimulate and strengthen work in the vital but under-researched field of the humanities curriculum at universities in South Africa.
