The University of South Africa
Professor Mahmood Mamdani, a global authority on decolonisation, delivered this year’s TB Davie Memorial Lecture on Tuesday, 22 August 2017, at UCT's New Lecture Theatre on Upper Campus.
His lecture, titled Decolonising the Post-Colonial University, cut to the heart of debates that are still raging across South Africa’s higher education institutions.
