Research Meetings & Events
monthly series of events organised as seminars and public dialogue
events serve as a point of intellectual exchange and engagement with
issues that are central to our research agenda. We believe that research
in the Humanities and Social Sciences should not only be about
contributing new knowledge production and engagement within the academe.
Part of the social function of a university involves a dialogue between
science and society; research in the social sciences and humanities
should strive for a connection between the scientific on the one hand,
and the social, political and cultural realms on the other. Speakers in
the monthly series include members of the HTT research team,
professional practitioners, established and emerging researchers drawn
from our network of international and South African scholars, as well as
young people who represent a diverse range of views.
