Professor Jonathan Jansen @ Kelvin Grove Club [ LUNCH ]

What are the real roots of the student protests of 2015 and 2016? Was it about fees, really? Why did protests turn violent? Where was government when buildings were burnt to the ground?

 

These are some of the questions which Jonathan Jansen – until recently Vice-Chancellor of the University of the Free State - considers. As By Fire, the End of the South African University, includes frank interviews with 11 VCs most affected. He considers what is driving – and exasperating – South Africa’s youth. His interview with UCT’s Max Price has put the cat among the pigeons...

 

Jansen, who is on a sabbatical to the US, will take questions. Books will be on sale.
