UKZN as the Premier University of African Scholarship: Practical Implications

Date: Friday, 3 September 2021

Time: 12h00 to 14h30

Platform: Zoom


The Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR), alongside the Covid 19 pandemic calls for a renewed look at the ongoing agenda of the decolonization of the curriculum. These catalytic realities have made it even more pressing for the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) to become ‘practical’ in its vision of being the ‘Premier University of African Scholarship’. UKZN is also currently embarking on Project Renewal in an endeavor to reflect on and renew all limbs and structures of the Institute.

The Culture Cluster in collaboration with the School of Social Sciences, seeks to contribute to this critical conversation and initiative, and to this end has organised a Roundtable Discussion. The Roundtable will provide a platform for critical stakeholders to debate and ‘flesh out’ what it means to be a premier university of African scholarship in the context of a rapidly changing world, the COVID pandemic and the Higher Education sector within the landscape of the 4IR.
