Konik, I.; Konik, A. – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2018
This article explores the possibility that the recent #RhodesMustFall and #FeesMustFall student protests at South African universities may be partially underpinned by grief over a dying essentialist assemblage in the wake of the 2012 Marikana massacre--which saw the assemblage severed from the State Apparatus in a way that spelled its doom.…

Davids, Nuraan – Ethics and Education, 2018
In May 2017, yet another South African university became a site of hate speech. Three students chose to display Nazi-inspired posters, which advertised an 'Anglo-Afrikaner student' event, under the motto 'Fight for Stellenbosch'. That the posters provoked the response which it so obviously sought, was evident in the student outrage, and the swift…

Hurst, Ellen; Mona, Msakha – Education as Change, 2017
South African higher education relies primarily on English as the medium of education. This is a result of the colonial history of the country, yet it disadvantages a large section of South African students who undertake their education in a language that is not their first language. It also reproduces the monolingual norm and anglonormativity.…
