Pathways to Securing the Future of the University in Africa: Insights from South Africa [Reihe: Perspektiven der Moderne]

Vortrag
Referent/in: Prof. Bassey Antia, Department of Linguistics, University of the Western Cape, South Africa
Inhalt:

Abstract: The daily experience of privilege and disadvantage among different stakeholders in the South African university is a leitmotif in discourses on the country’s higher education. A consequence of the colonial and apartheid era design of the system and of its basic education feeder pipeline, differential experience at many institutions shows up in programme access, success rates, visceral sense of belonging/exclusion, among others. The national student protests of 2015 and 2016 under the banner of a ‘free decolonised education’ have forcefully resurfaced several of these differential experiences, shaped not infrequently by how segments of stakeholder groups have been positioned historically. In this presentation, I discuss system responses to aspects of this differential experience of the university in South Africa.
