HST Session: Tuesday 11 October at Tshisimani Centre

10 Oct 2016 - 21:00

In the collective statement from the Department of Historical Studies issued on 7 October, we stated our intention of holding a series of “daily sessions for discussion and elaboration of the texts and other matters of historical interest which have relevance to the moment, involving all our staff, students and associates.” We also provisionally announced the time and venue of a preparatory meeting for the same to which everyone interested was invited.


As the UCT campus will be closed on Tuesday, we need to change the venue (and also the time). Please note that the meeting will be held on 11 October 2016 (Tuesday) from 12:30 to 14:30 in Tshisimani Centre for Activist Education (1 Batten Lane, Mowbray 7705). We encourage all, and particularly the students of the Department of Historical Studies, to participate in this discussion to exchange ideas, to identify the way forward as a department, and to collectively decide on the need/ form/ content/ purpose/ role of these proposed daily sessions.
